I am looking forward to teaching second grade this year with my wonderful co-teacher, Mrs. Kraft.  This is my 15th year working in District 162, and sixth year at Arcadia!  I graduated from Lewis University in 2007 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and Special Education.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Kyle, and our two children, Olivia and Jack, who are 9 and 5.5 years old. I am so excited to be working in second grade again this year, and I know we will learn a lot this year!

Hello 2nd grade families! My name is Ashling Kraft and I am very excited to be your child's teacher for the Arcadia School 2022-2023 school year!

This is my 5th year teaching at Arcadia Elementary School, but my 9th year teaching in the Matteson 162 school District!  I received a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Eastern Illinois University and three years ago, I completed my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, dog, family, and friends. I LOVE being a teacher and strive to inspire my students to be lifelong learners!

I will be using the Seesaw app during the school year, as well as Google Classroom. This is an excellent way to receive quick updates about what is happening at school, or to contact me quickly during the day. I am looking forward to working with your child as they learn and grow! We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn about each other in the days ahead.

We are going to have an amazing year in Second Grade!
