Mrs. Maria Bautista
Hello, Welcome to 3rd Grade! My name is Mrs. Bautista. I am excited to be your son/daughter's third grade teacher this year. I have been teaching for 17 years. I began my career as a 5th grade teacher, later a middle school math teacher, and have been a 3rd grade teacher for 9 years. I have a masters in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University and a bachelors in Economics from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
I am happily married to my best friend, Marco. We have two children, an 9 year old 4th grader,Daniel and a 5 year old pre schooler, Karla. We enjoy spending time as a family and traveling to new places.
I look forward to making our classroom a place where your child is challenged to his/her full potential everyday. Together we all can ensure that your child reaches his or her personal goals. I ask that your child try his or her best at all times. I am looking forward to a new year with your child!
