• Welcome to 4E!  I am Mrs. Rhodes and have just started my 20th year in District 117.  I've taught 3rd grade and 4th grade, and I've also taught 2nd-5th grades as a reading specialist.  Naturally, I love to read and write.  Other things that I love are my family (you will hear a lot about my son and daughter this year), coffee, and anything DISNEY!!! Speaking of Disney...

    "Our greatest natural resource is the minds of our children." ―Walt Disney:
     That sums up how I feel about each and every one of my students.  I am looking forward to developing our greatest natural resource this year.
