A Little Bit about Mrs. Rewers
I like to consider myself a lifelong learner. In addition to two degrees, I completed my endorsement to teach English as a Second Language two year ago. I find this to help me better serve our English language learner population. Just this summer, I participated in a study group using the Notice & Note signposts to help students gain a deeper understanding of all texts they read. I look forward to bringing this learning to my classes this year.
Finally, as I started teaching, I also became a parent and now have two growing children, Will in 6th grade and Ellis in 3rd grade, who are students at James Ward. I treasure my role as both teacher and parent at James Ward. I am proud of our school, its accomplishments, and most importantly the people who make up this wonderful community of learners. When I’m not devoting time to my students, I enjoy crocheting, baking, watching my son play travel baseball, learning out to use an Instant Pot, and spending time with my husband and children exploring Chicago or playing the Game of Life. I hope that by sharing some of my story, you will feel comfortable sharing your stories with me.
