    My name is Stephanie Yorek and I will be your child’s Kindergarten teacher. I am very excited to be working with your child and I look forward to providing an environment where they can have fun and learn all at the same time. Your child’s education and success is extremely important to me and I am going to do my very best to assist your child in their educational needs.

    I would like to share with you a little about my professional background. I received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education in May of 2011 from Purdue University Calumet. This will be my 12th year of teaching. My teaching experience has been spent teaching 6 years of Kindergarten and 6 years of 3rd grade. 

    Personally, I was born and raised in Hammond, Indiana; however, I currently live in Hobart. I am married to my husband, Sean and we have two cats, June-Bug and Little Kitty. I am the youngest child in my family and have one brother and one sister. When time permits I usually enjoy just spending time with my family, watching a movie, listening to music, or reading a good book.

    My passion to become a teacher was driven by the experiences I had when I was in elementary school. The teachers I had were all wonderful and caring and made my experiences something I would never forget. They helped build the person I am today and I hope to have the same impact on your child and their education.

    I am fully committed to having an open line of communication between us.  I strongly believe that it is important for everyone to contribute and communicate effectively in order to provide our students with a successful year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or other comments you may have throughout the school year. 

    Thanks for this wonderful opportunity and for allowing me to be an important part of your child’s life.
