Hi! My name is Elizabeth Van. I am the fourth grade EL teacher at Jefferson Elementary School. I have been teaching for six years. I have taught fourth grade for five years and second grade for one year. I attended school at Marquette University and received a degree in Elementary Education and Spanish. I got my ESL certification through Dominican University, and I'm currently working on finishing my Masters degree through Dominican University as well.
I am so excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher this year! Fourth grade is a very big year! We will be learning how to multiply larger numbers, divide with long division, and work with fractions in math. We will be reading a lot of fiction and non-fiction texts at the fourth grade level and learning all about the different elements in text. Fourth graders will explore some exciting topics in Science and Social Studies as well.
Please feel free to reach out to me at any point with comments or concerns.
