All About Mrs. Sparacio

My name is Annie Sparacio and I am one of the EL teachers at Emerson Elementary School.  This is my 12th year teaching in School District 200.  I have been at Emerson for 10 years. This is my 1st year as an EL Specialist. Prior to this role, I taught kindergarten for 9 years at Emerson as well as 3rd Grade at Pleasant Hill, and 4th Grade at Hawthorne Elementary.  I was also a classroom Instructional Assistant right out of college in District 200 as well.

I am the middle of five children and I grew up in Wheaton myself.  As a student, I attended Hawthorne Elementary School, Franklin Middle School and I graduated from Wheaton North High School.  I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Sociology from Augustana College in 2007.  I have completed a Master's degree as a reading specialist from Olivet Nazarene University and recently completed an English Language endorsement through the University of St. Francis.  

I have always been very passionate in working with and teaching young children.  I strive to positively impact every child and their family academically, socially and emotionally.  My hope is to ignite a deep desire and love for learning at a very young age.  My heart is at Emerson and I am grateful to be working with your children this year!
