Degree: Elementary Education Endorsement: ESL
My name is Lindsey Kearbey and I am a 5th grade teacher here at Glenside Middle School. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2022, with a degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in English as a second language. This is my first year teaching and I couldn't be more excited! I've always wanted to teach because it is such a rewarding profession. Getting to know my students and watching them grow from the start to the end of the year is one of the many reasons I decided to choose this profession. This is far more than a job for me.
My goals are to focus on promoting inclusion, critical thinking skills, and student development in the classroom. I will accomplish these goals while creating a warm and welcoming classroom environment for each student.
Every student that walks into my classroom is amazing in their own way and I can't wait to get to know every one of them!
