Mrs. April Tucker

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  My name is April Tucker and I am looking forward to an amazing year as your child’s teacher!  I would like to share with you some information about myself.

This will be my 13th year teaching at Matteson School.  I student taught here and it has been my home ever since.  I absolutely love teaching 2nd grade!  I graduated from Governors State University in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I grew up in Matteson, attended O.W Huth Middle School and graduated from Rich Central High School.  My husband and I have been married for 16 years and have three children, an 8th grader (son), 6th grader(son), and a 2nd grader (daughter).  

This school year is unlike any other to say the least!  I’m up for the challenge as a parent and a teacher. We can help each other along the way!  I will do my absolute best to educate your child remotely, with a hope that we can return to the classroom at some point this year!
