My name is Miss Tautweis. I have been teaching First Grade at St. Francis Xavier School for 18 years. I hold degrees in Education and Music from DePaul University. I completed a masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Dominican University. My goals as a first grade teacher are to help my students be good human beings-to choose kindness and pass it on! Also I want to teach my students to be thoughtful, insightful readers and good thinkers. Finally, I want to inspire my class to love learning and to always try to do their personal best. In advance, I thank you for your support and cooperation but most of all, for sharing your child with me. By working together we can assure your child a positive, successful year in First Grade.
