Mrs. Kendall Reder
Welcome to Fox Chase Elementary!
My name is Kendall Reder, and this is my eighth year teaching kindergarten. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with your child, and I will strive to be a positive role model and play an integral part in each student’s educational career.
It is wonderful to be teaching in my hometown of Oswego. I graduated from Butler University, in Indianapolis, in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in early and middle childhood education. I began teaching full-day kindergarten in 2011 at East View where I taught for six years. In 2015, I completed my Master's degree as a Reading Specialist from Concordia University of Chicago. Now, I look forward to joining the jaguars of Fox Chase! I am working towards my endorsement in ESL (English as a Second Language) at Olivet Nazarene University, which will be completed in October 2017.
I look forward to getting to know your child because building a relationship with each one of my students is very important to me. Likewise, I anticipate doing the same with you! In addition, our school focuses on the Character Counts Pillars of Character becasue displaying strong character traits is an important life skill. I believe in providing a classroom full of compassion and guidance to stimulate each child’s growth and love of learning.
