Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Teresa Grant. I recently relocated to Marion after teaching out of the area for several years. Before I began my career, I was a student teacher at Lincoln School here in Marion. I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education at SIUC. I began as a substitute teacher in 1999 and frequently worked in the Marion Unit 2 School District. In 2003, I completed a Masters Program in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on reading. The following year, I was hired as a full-time Title 1/Reading Teacher in Carbondale Elementary District #95. During the seven years in the district, I also taught in a third grade self-contained classroom. In 2007, I moved to Alton, Illinois and was assigned as a full-time Title 1/Reading Teacher. In 2009, I received a Masters in Education Administration through McKendree University. I moved back to Marion in 2018 and was hired as a Reading Specialist at Adams School.
My favorite part of teaching reading is seeing the tremendous growth that students make each year. I’m very excited to share my love of reading with the students at Adams School.
