Hello and welcome! My name is Reema Assil and I am super excited to be your child's teacher this 2020-2021 school year! I have a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Governors State University. I am endorsed in Special Education and also have the Transitional Bilingual Endorsement (TBE). This is my third year teaching preschool at Dorn. Previous to Dorn I was a long term substitute teacher at Glen Oaks and taught Discovery preschool at KinderCare Learning Center. I was also a weekend school teacher for four years. I also have three children and a cat named Masa! I love going to the park and watching movies with my kids!
My passion and journey to teaching began when I started out as a weekend school teacher. From the very first day of my teaching experience, I knew I would continue this journey for life! I believe that a child's first teacher is their parent. I am much honored to be your partner during these very precious early years of your child's life! I also believe in teaching the whole child. My classroom will be a positive and cheerful environment your child will thrive on socially, emotionally, and academically. Your input about your child is very important to me and will help me facilitate him or her as they grow into self learners.
Please feel free to contact me before or after school hours. I will use the Class Dojo app to communicate with you. My email is [email protected] My classroom phone number is 708-233-5621. The phone will not ring during school hours. If it is urgent, you may call the office at 708-233-5600. The best way to reach me is through Class Dojo or email.
