Ms. Crystian Chatman
Welcome to 6th and 7th Grade Math. I am excited to share my love for math and work with you this year. I am entering my ninth year as a teacher and my second year here with the Illinois Family. My goal in my classroom is to challenge and foster student thinking and learning. Along with my students, we want to create an enviroment where students are comfortable learning. As a graduate of Saint Xavier University in Chicago, my previous years of teaching have been spent in primary and middle school classes on Chicago's Southside. In my downtime I enjoy cooking, singing and spending time with friends and family. I am looking forward to an incredible school year!
