My name is Charla Stieren (pronounced "stern").  This is my eighth year teaching in Chatham and my seventh year teaching fifth grade.  My husband Ted and I live in Chatham and have three children. Emily is a junior at Western Illinois University this year, Madison is a freshman at GHS, and Isaac is a seventh grader at GMS.  We also have a dog named Pete, a cat named Repeat, a hermit crab named Shell-don, and a fish named Dante.  

I am originally from the Springfield area and graduated from Ursuline Academy.  I then got my bachelor's degree from DePaul University and my master's from Benedictine University.  

I like to keep lines of communication open as much as possible.  If you should have any questions throughout the year, please don't hesitate to contact me at  In an emergency or when a student needs immediate help with something, I don't mind being reached by text at 217-553-4097.  When texting, please let me know who you are and the details of your question and I will get back to you as soon as I can.  

 I look forward to helping your child grow this school year and am very excited to see them progress through this fun and exciting year!
