Mrs. Santoro ~ Mathematics Instructional Coach
About Me: I am a proud mom of three energetic kids. I love all things Disney and all things chocolate. I am fascinated by how students think about math and how they explain their thinking.
Background: I started my career in Cicero Public School District teaching third grade for 4 years. I then became a math instructional coach for 3 years. I taught at a private school in Park Ridge for 1 year and then became the Director of Mathematics. This summer I moved and this is my first year here at Hillside and I am serving the school as the Mathematics Instructional Coach.
Education: I have a B.A. in Rhetoric from the University of Illinois. I have an M.A. in Elementary Education from Saint Xavier University. I have a Language Arts Middle-School Endorsement, a Math Middle-School Endorsement and a Learning Behavior Specialist Endorsement.
Thanks to everyone who took the
pledge to be a Math Person at our
Family Math Game Night!
If you missed Game Night or you are looking for ways to incorporate more math at home, check out the Bedtime Math App. We read to our kids every night, why not solve a math problem together too?
