Dear 3rd Grade Families,

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year at Chateaux School! My name is Mrs. Lara, and I will be your child's 3rd grade teacher. I look forward to working with you to help your child reach their full potential and beyond!

    I have taught in the public schools for over 9 years. This will be my fourth year, as a teacher, with Chateaux School. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Northeastern Illinois in Elementary Education. I also have my Master's Degree in Teacher Leadership from Roosevelt University. I have been married for 16 years and I have a 15 year son, who is a sophomore in high school. During my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising, running, cooking, attending sporting events, and spending time with my family. My favorite food is pizza and I am a coffee lover! My favorite indulgence is Starbuck's coffee! 

    This year, your child is my number one priority. I will provide a safe, caring, nurturing, and a rigorous learning environment for your child (in person or remote). I will completely focus on positive behavior from my students. Students will be praised and rewarded for their positive behavior and good efforts. Chateaux School also focuses on PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) throughout the school. Students will be given Colt Bucks for being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe. The students will be able to purchase rewarrds using these Colt Bucks. 

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is slara@phsd144.net. You can also reach me at the school 708-335-9776 ext. 2826. Again, I look forward to working you! This is going to be an amazing school year!


    Mrs. Lara
