Mrs. Tamara Shadle

Welcome to fifth grade!

I attended Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, where I received my bachelor’s degree in general community health. After graduation I became a recreational therapist and helped children with varying needs for four years. Although I loved working with special needs kids, I felt like my career was not going in the direction that I wanted it to go, and I decided to try something different. I entered the field of outside sales and worked with Yellow Book USA. After one year of selling advertising space, I soon realized that I missed working with kids tremendously. I decided to go back to school to get a degree in elementary education. I attended St. Xavier University, Chicago, and received a master’s degree in elementary education. I have been teaching for 12 years, and I feel I have finally found my true calling. I truly enjoy working with kids and helping them reach their potentials.
