Mrs. Sybil Scaccia
Ever since elementary school, I have known I wanted to be a teacher. I loved working with kids and had several jobs during my teen years involving children. I attended Illinois State University to receive my bachelors in elementary education. I had the unique opportunity to student teach at a year-round school in San Antonio, TX. I started my teaching career in Plainfield, teaching third grade for 6 years. After having our first child, I decided to stay home to raise a family. After having our second child, we moved to Wheaton in 2007. During the time at home, I subbed in several different districts throughout Dupage. In 2011, I took a part-time preschool job in Wheaton. I continued to substitute teach part time in District 200 for the next 10 years. Subbing in District 200 helped me support the changes happening in education and kept me on top of the curriculum and what classroom teachers were doing to help prepare their students for the future. In 2017, I left my preschool job to be a long-term guest teacher at Wiesbrook Elementary as a reading specialist. In the summer of 2018, I interviewed and accepted the AM/PM kindergarten teaching position. I went to first grade the following year, then returned to kindergarten for the next 2 years. This year I moved up to third grade. My old stomping grounds. The best part about teaching at Wiesbrook is getting to know all of the families and students. My goal this school year is to provide a safe, fun, positive learning environment where each student can develop a love for learning.
My family and I live in Wheaton and my children went through District 200 schools. I am proud to say I am a member of a great community and a teacher in the district.
