Mrs. Klein

First Grade

 

My name is Bridget Klein, and I will be your child’s teacher for the upcoming school year! I am very excited to meet the students and guide them through first grade. First, I would like to provide some background information about myself. I have been in education for 13 years. First in early childhood, then as a para-educator, and now I begin my third year as a first grade elementary school teacher. I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education from Southern Illinois University. I returned to school to achieve my dream job as an elementary school teacher and earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching Certification from Aurora University.
