Welcome to 4M! My name is Michelle Minor and this is my 21st year as an educator! I taught 3rd grade for 11 years, and have taught 4th grade ever since. I have both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from Illinois State University. I value education in every way! The one thing I pride myself on in the classroom is communication. I look forward to communicating with you quite often via e-mail, assignment notebook, and the class website. It's a great day to be a teacher, student, and parent at Prairieland Elementary School!
