Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am Mrs. Cacioppo and I am a 4th grade teacher at Kipling Elementary. This is my first year teaching 4th grade and I am beyond excited! I have been teaching kindergarten and first grade since 2001. This is my eighth year at Kipling.
I live in Gurnee with my husband, Jon, and 12 year old daughter, Gianna, who will be starting 7th grade this fall. We have a sweet dog named Bella. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafting, cooking, gardening, and spending time with my family.
In 2001, I graduated from Indiana University, Bloomington, with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. In 2015, I earned a Master's Degree in Reading Education from Concordia University to become a Reading Specialist; however, I am not ready to leave the classroom!
I am passionate about teaching and want to provide the opportunities and resources I can to help all learners succeed.
One of my favorite things about teaching is working with kids and watching the light bulb turn on when they learn something new.
I look forward to a fantastic school year as we inspire learners to be leaders every day!
