Meet Mrs. Gawla

Hello scholars! I am so excited to be your 2nd grade teacher. It’s going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and new discoveries. This will be my 8th year teaching at Illinois School but my 11th year doing what I love. I enjoy reading, running, my husband (Joey), my baby (James), outdoor activities and all things girly! I also have the biggest sweet tooth and must have coffee before any early morning conversations :-) Let’s make this an incredible year!

In this classroom, you are cared about. I value your ideas, thoughts, and actions. You have unique talents and strengths and I cannot wait for you to share them with your classmates. You will bring so much to our class and I can’t wait to learn more about you! I encourage proactive conversations with parents throughout the year. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. I want to partner with you in order to best support your child!
