Welcome to 5A!
Hello! My name is Alex Augustine and I will be teaching 5th grade at Western Avenue for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. I am extremely excited to be continuing my teaching career at such a wonderful school! I graduated from Illinois State University in May of 2016 with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. During my time at ISU I was chosen to participate in the Professional Development School (PDS) program. This program offered the unique opportunity to student teach my entire senior year.
This will be my third year teaching at Western Avenue and I am excited to be a part of the Western family again! In addition to teaching at Western Avenue last year, I was lucky enough to be a student at WAS during my elementary years and a teaching assistant during my senior year at GHS! I am so thrilled to be back at my old elementary school to teach!
Through my years of schooling, I have seen first hand how much of an impact a teacher can have on their students. I look forward to spending the school year teaching and learning with my class – all while having a lot of fun! I cannot wait to share my love for learning with my students, their parents, WAS staff, and the Geneva community!
