Elementary Education Teaching English Learners Endorsement
Hello! My name is Ms. Filas and I am so excited to be your student's 3rd grade teacher!
I graduated from Elmhurst University in 2021 with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education as well as an endorsement in Teaching English Learners. After graduation, I taught 5th grade for a year in Wheaton and decided to make the switch to 3rd grade for my second year of teaching. 3rd grade was always my favorite year of elementary school, so I cannot be more excited about having third graders of my own!
I grew up in Saint Charles my whole life and I just recently bought a townhome in the same neighborhood I grew up in. Outside of school, I love being outdoors, going to coffee shops, spending time with loved ones, and baking.
I believe in building strong relationships with not only my students, but their families as well. It is so important to me that we build a strong unit for your child to lean on throughout the year and to share common goals to help your student thrive! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. Let's have a great school year!
