Name and Grade

Learning Specialist: Ms. Oehlsen

Where are you From?

I was born in a suburb of Chicago but grew up in a very small town in Central Illinois. I've lived in Chicago longer than anywhere else and am proud to be from here.

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Lately, I've been dreaming of traveling to the Arctic Circle so I can see the Northern Lights.

What is one book that everyone must read?

Everyone should read the Birchbark House by Louis Erdrich.

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

Mrs. Hunter was one of my favorite teachers. She had fish, a praying mantis, and gerbils as classroom pets. Also, she made sure I knew my multiplication facts before I finished 4th grade.

What do you like most about Goudy?

I love Goudy's diversity. I learn something new about the world every day from a Goudy student or teacher.
