Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Gretchen Zuckerman
This year marks my sixteenth year teaching in District 308. Knowing I wanted to be a teacher at an early age, I graduated with my elementary education degree from Illinois State University. A few years later, I graduated with my master’s degree in reading instruction from Aurora University. Before coming to second grade, I taught first grade, kindergarten and led reading intervention groups.
My favorite aspect of teaching, is watching children blossom throughout the year. I also love getting to see how the students become a true community that works together to learn and grow! I never cease to be amazed at how much growth occurs each year. Getting to play a part in this process is a huge privilege for me.
I feel blessed to be a part of such a vibrant and growing school as Homestead!
