Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Pari McFarland-Smith
I am excited to join the Fox Chase Elementary School team! I am coming to Fox Chase with a wide range of experience, including 12 years at Mt. Carmel Middle School in down state Illinois as a Language Arts & Technology teacher. I have also taught at Minooka Jr. High School, the St. Charles Youth Center, and the 2018-19 school year at SD308 Thompson and Traughber Junior High Schools.
I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Language Arts, Social Science, and Business, Marketing, and Management. I have most recently attended the University of St. Francis to obtain certification in Mathematics, Science, and Learning Behavior Specialist.I am thrilled to make the transition to 4th and 5th grade Resource Teacher! My experience and knowledge of what is expected of my students as they grow and move on to Junior High School will prove very beneficial to them. I am very much looking forward to getting to know all the students, parents, and staff of the Fox Chase family!
