Mrs. Christina Chapan

Dear Parents:

Hello,  my name is Mrs. Christina Chapan. I am one of  the kindergarten teachers at Illinois .  This is my thirty first year teaching and I have taught from preschool through high school.  I have been a part of the Matteson 162 family for the last fifteen  years.   I am excited to use methods that allow kids to move, talk, listen and work with each other every day.I am excited about the transition from self-contained to resource and know that my experience as a regular education teacher will be valuable as I transition to this new position of Kindergarten. 

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at  I look forward to a fun and productive year for your child.

I have also included some helpful websites we are working on daily in the classroom to encourage math and reading comprehension and fluency.  This will greatly help your child as they develop in their current IEP skills.  At times I may use these websites as part of their homework.  Please let me know if this is a problem or you do not have internet access  and I will assign similar assignments.  The instructions for your specific student is included in the packet.   Please send me a request on your email to join the Remind App.  I have also sent a request via your email as well.
