Welcome to 1st Grade!

   My name is Mrs. Trojaniak.  I teach 1st grade at Our Lady of Charity School.  This is my second year at this school district.  OLC is a great place for our youth to grow academically and in their faith.

   First, I graduated from Bradley University in 2011 with my bachelor's degree in elementary education.  I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was a little kid.  Teaching is my passion.  After graduation I worked as in kindergarten for a few years before I started teaching 1st grade at OLC.  

   Recently, I got married.  My husband and I live out in the suburbs with our little Jack Russell named Zoe.  I always like to keep busy both in my personal and my professional life.  I'm organized, creative, energetic and always willing to lend an ear. 

   Overall, first grade is a big year as we work on independency, mathematics calculations, problem solving, reading fluency and writing with details in our words and in our pictures.  I look forward to working with your child this year as we grow together in our faith, education and on ourselves.  

"We are the first grade, the mighty mighty first grade.  We'll be good leaders.  We'll lead the way!"
