Degrees and Certifications:
Our new year is here and I would like to take this opportunity to say “Hello,” and introduce myself. My name is Janet Landingham and I teach third grade. I was raised and continue to live in the south suburban area of Chicago. My family includes my husband Ranard and eight-year-old daughter Selah.
This is my fifth year at Matteson Elementary School. Previously to my time at Matteson School, I taught second grade at Nathan Hale Elementary School in Crestwood, IL for six years. I also worked as a paraprofessional in a third through fifth grades ED/BD special education classroom and as a site director for the Champions before & afterschool program. Doing those jobs over 12 years allowed me to develop a passion for working with children and motivated me to pursue a career in teaching. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education K-9 with a Middle School Endorsement in history from Governor's State University.
Some of my interests include, traveling, reading, karaoke and working with children. Working as a team, the parents, students, teachers, and administrators will make this year a super year for learning!
