Grade 1

My name is Caryn Lee Bednarek and I am currently teaching first grade at Queen of All Saints.  I moved to this area a year ago after living in Illinois my entire life.  I am honored to be at Queen of All Saints. Before coming here, I was teaching kindergarten for the Archdiocese of Chicago.  I have also been the Director of Children's Ministry at my church, Director of Preschool at a Lutheran Church, and spent several years teaching in public schools.  I have earned a Bachelors degree from Southern Illinois in Elementary Education, a Master's Degree from St. Xavier University in educational leadership, and a Graduate certificate in Early Childhood.  I now live in Westville with my husband, Bob, and my two children, Matthew(15), and Meagan (13).
