Mrs. Jennifer DeMar
Hello! My name is Mrs. Jennifer DeMar and I am so excited to be a part of the Arcadia Elementary School team. More importantly, I am thrilled to be your child’s new Kindergarten teacher!
I would like to begin by telling you a bit about myself. I graduated from St. Xavier University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. This is my fourth year teaching Kindergarten at Arcadia School. Prior to that, I taught 3rd grade at St. Leonard School in Berwyn for five years, spent a year teaching Kindergarten at Isaac Singleton Elementary School in Joliet, and another year teaching Pre-Kindergarten at La Petite in Homer Glen. Each experience has helped me grow as a teacher and understand the importance of quality education in the early years of a child.
It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. It is my goal that the students not only learn, but also have fun! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together!
