Mrs. Caitlin Wilson
Welcome to first grade!
I am currently in my fifteenth year at Long Beach Elementary in School District 308. I was a reading specialist for my first four years at Long Beach. I love the change that I made to teach first grade. This is my eleventh year as a first grade teacher, and I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment. This is my third year job sharing with Mrs. Rogers. I am excited to be at school, and spend more time with my five-year-old and newborn daughters. We live in Yorkville with my husband and two dogs.
I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Drake University, in Des Moines, Iowa. My undergraduate degree included endorsements in both reading and language arts. I completed my master’s degree at Benedictine University, in Lisle, Illinois, in 2009 to become a reading specialist. I am always looking for the new and best ways to teach children.
