Mrs. Tricia Boese

Hello! My name is Tricia Boese (Baisy - like a daisy). I have been teaching since 2003. I have always taught at Irene King. My first year was in 1st grade and then I was moved to 4th grade. I received my undergraduate in Education from Eastern Illinois University and have since received 2 masters. My first masters is in Curriculum & Instruction from Concordia University and my second in Reading Specialist from Olivet Nazarene University. I have many roles in our school other than being a 4th grade teacher. I am Irene King's Tech Coach of the building and I have been helping out with car rider duty for over 4 years.

I am married and live with my family in Plainfield. My husband and I have 3 children - Haeley (12), Sophia (8), & Jacob (5). My favorite colors are purple and green. My favorite hobby is reading a book and watching the matching movie. The book is almost always better!! I love baking. I have made almost of my childrens' birthday cakes. I also love art - crafting. I am working hard at making new art pieces for every holiday to display on my mantle. I love teaching math and science, while incorporating art into these 2 subjects. Some of my favorite things are pizza, chocolate, sweets, caffeine, & gift cards. 

I look forward to working with my students every year. I look forward to a great school year and seeing the success that all students make!
