• Meet Mrs. Vitale

     Mrs. Vitale
    Name:  Mrs. Vitale
    Grade:  Third
    Room #: 213
    I was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago IL.  I then attended Eastern IL University where I studied education and earned two teaching certificates, one in elementary education and the other in special education.
     
    I married my husband in 1984, who is a school psychologist for Peoria County.  We have two children.  Our daughter is married and works as an RN/Infection Control Director in a hospital outside of St. Louis.  Our son is a Sophmore at Southern Illinois University majoring in Aviation Technologies and Aviation Management.  
     
    I later returned to school for my master's degree in education/reading at ISU, earning my reading specialist degree.  After teaching many years as a special education teacher I began teaching as a 4th grade teacher.  Then for nine years I served as a reading coach/reading specialist, assisting teachers and students in the area of reading.  I have enjoyed going back into the classroom and teaching again.  This will be my 32 year working in eduction.Teaching is a passion in my life and I look forward to working with my students this year.
