Mrs. Rene Garren

     My name is Mrs. Rene Garren and I have had the privilege of working with children in different aspects for many years. I earned both my Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree from Eastern Illinois University. I have been in the Oswego area all my life and attended Oswego schools. I am very proud and excited to be a Panther!!! (Once a Panther....Always a Panther)

     My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help your child discover his or her individuality and work alongside them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences and learning creatively. It is my goal to create a community of learners who are committed to working hard and having fun.
