Welcome to 3rd Grade-Room 201
Meet Ms. Calhoun
I'm excited to return to the Peirce family this year in a new role as a third-grade teacher! My two boys were part of this amazing community for many years and I look forward to working with the wonderful teachers and parents that make this school so unique! After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University, I continued my studies at the University of Illinois-Chicago earning my Master's Degree in 2006 as well as my English Language Learner's Certification. I then began my teaching career with the Chicago Public Schools and have taught third grade and fourth grade for almost 13 years. When outside of the Peirce community, I enjoy attending teacher institutes as I get to continue my love of learning and bring exciting new pieces back to our classroom. This past summer I attended a teacher institute in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia learning about "Race and Equity in Colonial Williamsburg". I also enjoy traveling with my family, bicycling around the city, and being with friends enjoying great food!
