Meet Your Teacher
Welcome to my class!
My name is Miss Faber. This is my fifth year teaching at St. Mary School. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, English as a Second Language endorsement, and Learning Behavior Specialist endorsement from Elmhurst College. I will be starting a graduate program at Concordia University this fall to begin working on a Masters in Reading.
I have a passion for reading all kinds of books, writing stories, and Snoopy. My greatest passion is helping my students learn and grow as they become the people they are meant to be. This is going to be a wonderful school year!
