Welcome to 4th grade! I am Mrs. Fitzgerald and have been teaching here at Lincoln Elementary since 2011. This is my first year teaching fourth grade. I have also taught both second and third grade. Prior to working in District 200, I was a reading teacher in Woodridge District 68. As a reading teacher, I worked with students kindergarten through 6th grade. My favorite part about my job is seeing the growth of children throughout the school year. I love the moment when the light bulb turns on in a student's mind and they begin to take off! I also enjoy being creative with my kids and seeing what they are capable of creating!
I have my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois. I also received my Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy as well as an ELL Endorsement through Benedictine University. I also hold a certificate in Motivation and Classroom Management as well as a certificate in Integrating Technology into the Classroom from the University of LaVerne. I live in Naperville with my husband, Kiel, and dog, Duncan.
