Hello, my name is Karen Anzalone. I live in Joliet with my husband Joe. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I am very excited to be working in Second Grade at Nelson Prairie. I believe that each child is unique and has his/her own rate of development. My goal is to make my classroom a place where your child can make new friends, maintain a healthy self-image, and experience successes through positive interactions. I want the children to feel proud of their accomplishments and know that they make a difference.
Favorite Thing About Teaching:
My favorite thing about teaching is watching the children's faces light up when they are learning something new. It is then that I know I have accomplished my task----Teaching!
