Mrs. Khan

Hello! My name is Seema Khan and I am a 3rd grade Special Education teacher at Bernard J. Ward Elementary School. This is my 3rd year teaching at B.J. Ward. Before that I taught 4th grade at a private school in Bridgeview.  I graduated from Benedictine University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree and student taught at Wood View School in Bolingbrook.

My philosophy of education is to provide a safe environment where students can learn and grow socially, emotionally, and academically. I feel that when our children feel safe and comfortable, they will be more inclined to make an effort in their learning.  I hope to teach your child that with patience, hard work, and perseverance, they can be successful at anything.

I believe that when parents, teachers and the students work together, nothing can stop them from succeeding. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have. I will do my best to respond in a timely manner. khans@vvsd.org or call the school at

When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, going for walks, and spending time with my family. Some of my favorite books are The Giving Tree, The Day the Crayons Quit, and Harry Potter.
