Mrs. Kim Lienhardt

Hello and welcome to fourth grade!  

My name is Mrs. Lienhardt and I am very excited to be working with all of you for the 2020-2021 school year!  I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from North Central College, and a master's degree in reading instruction through Aurora University.  This is my sixth year in the Oswego school district, but will be my 19th year of teaching overall.  I started my career teaching in the Chicago Archdiocese at a small school called St. Camillus that was right across from Midway Airport.  I spent three years there in 1st grade before moving to a new district.  I began a new chapter in my career as a 3rd grade teacher at John Stewart Elementary located in Elburn, Illinois and part of the Kaneland School District.  I taught 3rd grade for seven years and loved my new position.  After seven years, I had the opportunity to move to second grade at the same school.  I taught second grade for the next three years until my family and I decided to move further south.  I am very excited to begin my sixth year at Grande Park Elementary and look forward to an outstanding 2020-2021 school year!
