Welcome to Ms. Tzoumas' 1st Grade!

Meet the teacher: Hello and welcome to first grade! I am very excited to be starting my first year at St. Christopher School. I received my B.A. in elementary education with a content focus in English as a Second Language from UIC. I am currently working towards my Master's in Leadership at Concordia University. I have taught for six years in Chicago Public Schools and am excited to work in a new environment. 

I will be posting monthly newsletters online for you to view. These Newsletters will cover important dates and academic updates as far as what the students are learning about in each content area.
