Ms. Alyssa Papiernik

Dear Parents/guardians, 

I would like to take time to introduce myself as your child's third grade teacher. My name is Ms. Alyssa Papiernik and this is my first(full)year teaching at QofM. Last year, I came into the school in January to replace the 3rd grade teacher.  

I am from Lemont, Illinois and I went to a Catholic School for my K-8 education at SS. Cyril and Methodius School.  For my undergraduate degree, I went to Illinois State University and graduated with a Human and Educational Services Degree. During my time at ISU,  I completed field experiences in Special Education, such as co-teaching in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, pulling students out for extra help in the resource room, and working in 7th and 8th grade in a therapeutic day school in Chicago. After I finished at ISU, I returned to school to earn my master’s degree in Elementary Education at Lewis University.

I am looking forward to working with your student this school year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the class. I can’t wait to work with your student and am looking forward to getting to know both you and your child throughout the school year!
