Mrs. Greathouse - Kindergarten

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Greathouse

Welcome to West Salem Grade School!!!  I have been teaching Kindergarten here at West Salem for 19 years.  I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in May of 2002 and later received my masters in Education from Rockford University.   I spent a year subbing and have been teaching Kindergarten ever since.  Kindergarten is a time when so many school skills are learned.  We learn to be at school all day, we learn to share, we learn to play together, and we learn to get along.  We also learn our alphabet and sounds, we learn our numbers, we learn to add and subtract, and we learn to write sentences.  My favorite thing to teach is to teach them to READ.  

My family and I reside in the country and my three children attend school in Edwards County They are currently in the 6th, 8th and 9th grade.  Our family stays busy helping on the farm.  My boys raise Herford cows and we have a couple of dogs and plenty of cats.
