Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Betty Augustine
I am excited to be returning as a fourth year Plank Pirate! I returned to teaching as a special educator after staying home for several years with my family. I received my bachelor's degree in special education at Illinois State University, Normal. My previous teaching experience includes five years as a middle school resource teacher in Arlington Heights School District 25. I have the privilege of living in School District 308 and being an active member of the community.
I believe student success results from a team approach, involving the student, parents and the teacher. I want to facilitate students’ learning, social confidence and overall independence. I encourage students to try, try again, and keep trying to be the best that they can be. I believe that every day is an opportunity, and it should be treated as one. I am looking forward to an amazing 2015-16 school year, working alongside amazing staff, students and parents.
