About

Ms. Sommers

Thank you for visiting my website. Let me start with telling you a little about myself. This is my fourth year teaching. The past two years I have taught mathematics intervention, 8th Grade Math, and 7th/8th Grade S.T.E.M.. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I have my Elementary Teaching Certificate with endorsements in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts. I am currently the B Softball Coach, 7th Grade Girls Basketball Coach, and 5th Grade Girls Basketball Coach here at the Junior High. In the summer of 2016, I started my own business, called Snowie Chicago, which serves shaved ice in Bolingbrook, Illinois. I believe it is important to take initiative to continue to grow as an individual.

My goal for this year is to challenge my students and watch them grow into their fullest potential. I want to group students of different levels together and see them develop together as a team. Therefore, group work is the key to having a successful class and is something I value. The impact of group work, when students help fellow students, changes each person and transforms the atmosphere of the class as a whole.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Email is the best way to reach me. Thank you!
