• Hello! I am Ms. Knoll and I am a 1st grade teacher this year! I am a second year teacher as I graduated from Illinois State University in Normal, IL in May of 2021! This is my third year at Mae Jemison and my 2nd year in first grade! I graduated with my bachelor's degree in elementary education, with an endorsement in English as a second language. I am a Golden Apple Scholar and have many hours of classroom experience. On top of being very involved in education, I also have danced all of my life as well, and even spent my last four years dancing at the collegiate level while at ISU as well.I grew up in Tinley Park, so I am very excited to be back and working in the south suburbs! I cannot wait for an awesome year in 1st grade!
