Welcome to Mrs. Ose's Classroom!
Welcome to Second Grade! My name is Penny Ose and I have the honor of teaching your child this year. This will be my eighth year at Gwendolyn Brooks; in the past I have taught First Grade, Third Grade and Preschool in other schools. I have a Masters in Early Childhood Education from DePaul University and I was inspired to become a teacher by the interactions I witnessed between my children and their early childhood teachers. So, as they went to school I went to school. I am passionate about what I do and have witnessed the benefits your child gains from a strong early education. My husband Rick works in the area of Finance, and we have two daughters: Madeline teaches in St. Louis and Camilla attends the University of Kentucky.
