Ms. Mary Beth Plunkett
Welcome! I am Ms. D'Andrea (soon to be Mrs. Plunkett) and I am a second-grade teacher at Westfield. I am so excited to be joining the District 89 family this year! We are going to have an awesome year learning new things and having fun in Room 17!
I grew up not too far from Glen Ellyn in Itasca, IL, with my parents and my younger brother. I completed my elementary education degree at Illinois State University in 2016 (Go Redbirds!) then attended National Louis University to complete my ESL endorsement in 2020. I LOVE learning and plan to continue adding to my credentials over the next few years. Prior to Westfield, I was a first-grade teacher for five years.
In July 2020, I FINALLY got married after postponing for a year. My husband and I live in Schaumburg with our dog named Duck. We love to travel, try new restaurants, and spend time with our family and friends.
I feel so fortunate to be your child's teacher this year and am looking forward to partnering with you to help your child grow and reach their full potential. My goal is for all students to enjoy coming to school and love learning! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. It is going to be a great year!
