  • Welcome to Fourth Grade!

    Hello! My name is Connie Stanczak and I have been fortunate enough to have been teaching fourth grade at Grove since 2004. I love my little Gators!  Prior to teaching at Grove, I was a fifth grade teacher at Pepper Ridge.  I am a native of Bloomington, attended a parochial elementary school, graduated in from University High School, and followed in my mother's footsteps by graduating from Illinois State University (ISNU for her).  I graduated from ISU and became a graduate assistant in the Math Department there for a year until I was offered a third grade teaching job at Epiphany School.  I taught there for four years until my first son was born.  I stayed at home then, eventually having two more children, another son and a daughter.  In 1998, after my children were all in school, I returned to teaching, thinking I would just occasionally sub.  But I soon realized what I had been missing!  
    So, here I am!  My children are all out of school.  Two live in Chicago, and one is in Denver.  I am a new grandma now - finally!  My husband and I live in Bloomington.  He is an attorney, is on the Bloomington Planning Commission, and you may hear his forums on WJBC.  I look forward to teaching your children.
