Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Wendy Miller. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (2006) and a Master's Degree in Reading Instruction (2016) also from Aurora University . For eight years, I taught second grade at Prairie View Elementary in Sandwich, IL. This is my seventh year teaching kindergarten at Western Avenue. I have always loved learning and teaching, and I feel that it is a privilege to start little ones on their educational journey.
My husband Jon and I live in Yorkville with our three sons. Lucas is fourteen, Nolan is ten, and Matthew is seven. Our three sons keep us busy but also very proud.
I look forward to working with you and your child. This school year will be unlike any previous year. We will be on plotting a new course together, but I will always have the physical, educational, and social-emotional well-being of all my students and their families at the forefront of all decisions made and procedures put into place.
The kindergarten team at Western Avenue will collaborate and work hard to ensure that your child’s time in the classroom will be a fun-filled learning experience during which he or she will blossom socially and academically. I believe all children can learn and thrive with the right support and tools. I also believe that the more we work together the more your child will succeed.
