Ms. Barbara Woodworth

Welcome to the 2020 -2021 school year!!  My name is Barbara Woodworth and I am always so excited at the beginning of a new school year!!  I have been teaching in the Matteson School District 162 for 19 years and love it as much today as I did the first day I started!  I have been teaching 3rd grade for 16 years and still find it rewarding and look forward to finding innovative ways to help children to develop a love of learning that will last their entire lifetime!!  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education that I received from Governor's State University and a Master's Degree in Administration from Olivet Nazarene University.  I firmly believe that all children can learn and achieve success, and that parents and teachers can work together as a team to make it an awesome year of growth, discovery and significance for your child.  This year will be more challenging with Covid-19 and remote learning but if we work as a team we will accomplish great things.

Hello!  My name is Karen Lisota and I am a third grade co-teacher with Mrs. Woodworth this year. It will be a wonderful year! I have taught for 18 years total, and this is my eighth year in Matteson.  I taught for 11 years in Riverside and then took time off to raise my family.  I am very happy to be back in Matteson again this year.  I received a bachelor's degree in special education from Illinois State University and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University.  My interests include spending time with my husband and three children.  I also love to read!!  I am looking forward to another wonderful year working with you and your child!  Please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Woodworth or me with any questions or concerns you may have.
