Mrs. Jessica Groebe

Hello families!!!  I look forward to a wonderful year of learning, exploring, and fun with your children.  A little bit about me, I have been a third grade teacher at Independence Elementary for 13 years.  I taught fourth grade for 3 years in Frankfort.  I have a bachelor’s degree in political science from St. Norbert College.  I have a bachelor’s degree in education from Illinois State University.  I have my master’s degree in teaching and leadership from St. Xavier University.  I recently received my English as Second Language (ESL) endorsement from the University of St. Francis.

I am married and have one child.  My sister-in-law, Char Smith, is a fourth grade teacher at Independence.  I first worked with her in Frankfort and she introduced to me to my husband.  I enjoy reading, especially biographies, in my spare time.  When I can, I love to scrapbook.   I spend most of my time trying to keep up with child.  If you couldn’t tell from my photo, I am obsessed with Hamilton the musical!

Here are a few ways I can be reached.  You can call the school at 630-759-7282.   If I am not available to talk at the time, I will return the call as soon as possible.  The best way to contact me is to email me at, and I will return your email as soon as I can.
