About Second Grade

In Second Grade, we believe in teaching to each learner’s unique personality and learning style. We provide flexible, student-directed learning environments that help our students reach their fullest potential. Through workshop-based instruction, we help children set goals, and support them as they strive to reach those goals.

She also taught a 1st/2nd grade multiage class during her time at Norton Creek. Mrs. Adam lives in St. Charles with her husband, Dan, and their two daughters, Charlotte and Maggie. She received her undergraduate degree from Benedictine University 2002, and also has a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

We are excited to have your child join us in their second grade journey. We feel that we, along with you and your child, are a team, and we want to work with you to ensure second grade is a success. Please do not ever hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
