Mrs. Julie Rainaldi
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Kindergarten!
I have been teaching for 15 years in SD308. I did my student teaching in School District 308, then graduated from Illinois State University, Normal, IL, with my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. From there, I was fortunate enough to be hired by the school where I did my student teaching. I then went on to get my master’s degree at Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. I have continued my education with constantly reading great educational books and attending classes. This will be my 14th year teaching kindergarten, and I taught one year of first grade.
Teaching is what I told my kindergarten teacher I wanted to do, and it is still what I love today. I enjoy seeing the students eyes light up when the get a new concept. I love their trust in me, and I enjoy being part of each child's family.
