Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Susan Blocker
I graduated from Mount Mercy University, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and an endorsement in reading. I also have a master's degree in teaching from Aurora University. I taught first grade at St. Mary's School in Plano, Ill., for three years before I began working in District 308. I taught 1st grade at Old Post Elementary School for the last 22 years and this year I moved with my students to 2nd grade!
I always wanted to be a teacher! Two of my closest aunts were teachers, and I really enjoyed going into their classrooms and helping them prepare for each new school year. I also had wonderful teachers growing up. Their excellent examples inspired me to pursue teaching and become a role model for my students. Being a teacher has really been my dream come true!
