Welcome to Ms. Terpstra's Second Grade Class!
I am so beyond excited to join the highly qualified staff at DuJardin Elementary School! I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you this school year. I truly love teaching and consider myself a life long learner.
I am a city girl at heart! I love Chicago and have lived downtown for 11 years. I went to DePaul University in Lincoln Park. I have been teaching since 2008 and recently transferred from the Chicago Public School system. My favorite hobbies include walking my Peek-a-poo puppy named Maddy, exploring Chicago, playing volleyball, reading, fishing, and traveling.
My main purpose is to challenge each child as individuals to reach their maximum learning potential in a safe, structured, respectful academic environment.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions or concerns at (630) 894-9200 or via email at [email protected]
Let's make this the best year yet!
