Ms. Groh

I would like to take a moment and introduce myself.  I was born and raised in southern Illinois and completed an Elementary Education degree at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.  Upon completion of my degree, I began working on my Master’s in Educational Psychology Counseling.  I later began my professional career working with Adult Education (GED) and Family Literacy.  After eight wonderful years, I decided to return to my first love, “TEACHING.”  I taught both second and third grade in inner-city Chicago and first grade at Desert Willow and Horseshoe Trails.  

My role as your child’s teacher extends beyond teaching reading, writing, and math.  I will provide a learning environment that encourages students to deepen their academic interests and investigate their questions.  I will implement activities that promote student responsibility, problem solving, and student accountability.  Learning activities will include whole class instruction, small group, student led, and one-on-one instruction to activate and reinforce the learning process.
