Hi and welcome to Title I reading at Chebanse Elementary! I am Mrs. Donna Wine and it is a privilege for me to teach as a reading specialist with the capable staff here at Chebanse. In addition to Title I reading, I have taught grades kindergarten through third in the regular classroom for nearly 25 years. I love my job here at Chebanse Elementary!
My educational training has been at Olivet Nazarene University where I have earned a BA in Elementary Education and two MAE degrees, one in Curriculum and Instruction and the other in Reading.
In addition to being a teacher, I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I have been married to my teacher-husband for over 40 years. We have two grown children. Our son is an optometrist and our daughter is a former teacher who now stays at home to raise her children. I have four beautiful grandchildren who all love to read with their "Nonna" and Grandchild Number 5 will arrive this fall.
Educating a child requires cooperation between the home and the school. I am eager to work with you to help your child be his/her best. If you need to reach me with information or a question regarding your child, send a note, call the school at 815-697-2642, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
