Welcome to Parent Reach

#D109 Pride........striving to leave no stone unturned.

Welcome to the District #109 webpage, Parent Reach. On this site, you will be able to access information for a variety of workshops, meetings, and events available for parent involvement.

As the District #109 Title I Parent Involvement/Educator, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Anne Whiting, and I began my teaching adventure with Indian Springs District #109, in 1989. I graduated with a B. A. degree from Adrian College (Michigan), and a M. A. T. degree from National Louis University (Illinois). My experience at Player Early Childhood Center was my first stop, teaching in the Head Start and PEP programs, followed by the role as Early Childhood Parent Educator. This position gave me an opportunity to work directly with parents and their children, in both a home and school environment. As a Certified Infant Massage Instructor, I had great experiences working with parents and teaching them the art of, and the lifelong benefits of infant massage. Over the last several years, I have expanded my position to become part of our Title I services. My passion lies in the area of working with and providing parents with resources, and offering learning opportunities to enhance knowledge in the area of child development and social- emotional learning.

Please visit this page regularly to see the interesting variety of learning opportunities available for you. I am available for phone conferences, home or office visits, and information about workshops, meetings, or events.

My office is located in Lyle School. To contact me, please call (708) 496-8722. I may be reached by the following e-mail, as well--awhiting@isd109.org.
