Ms. Crystian Chatman
Welcome to 4th Grade Math and Science. I am excited to share my love for learning and work with you this year. I am entering my 11th year as a teacher and my 4th 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!
