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 timesI am looking forward to a new year with your child!
