Welcome to Mrs. Traynor's PM Kindergarten Class!
I grew up attending D200 schools...Go Tigers!...and from 2010 to 2014, I taught kindergarten and first grade at Wiesbrook Elementary School. My husband and I lived in Florida for two years after that where I taught second grade and all day kindergarten. One of my favorite things is reading to children. I am so excited to be back teaching kindergarten at Hawthorne again this year!
One of my main hobbies is running. I have run the Chicago Marathon and a 10K in England, along with various fun races in the Chicagoland area. I also LOVE traveling and have traveled all over Europe. When I'm not teaching, running, or traveling, you can find me cooking/baking with my husband, drinking coffee, and spending time with my growing family; my husband and I welcomed our first child in June 2016. Our days outisde of work are busy running around after him and soaking up as many cuddles as possible. :)
I'm excited for a GREAT year in Kindergarten! :)
