My name is Mrs. Ward and I am so excited about being your teacher. It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures in Room 28! I can’t wait to meet you and all of your classmates. We will be a great team!
I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in Chicago and went to college at Northwestern. I live with my husband and three children in Evanston. I have 9 year-old twins named Owen and Lauren who are entering fourth grade and a 6 year-old son named Justin who is starting first grade! We also have a lot of pets: a cat, a hamster, a crayfish, and lots of fish. As you might imagine, we have a lot of fun at our house!
