Miss Midlock

5th Grade - Oster-Oakview

About Me

Welcome to 5th Grade! My name is Miss Midlock, and I teach Math, Science, and Social Studies at Oakview. This is my first year teaching in the district, and my 5th year teaching overall.

I graduated from Illinois State University in 2017 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish. I then taught 5th grade for 1 year in Markham, IL and 4th and 5th grade for 3 years in Merrionette Park, IL. This past May, I completed my Master's of Science in Education at Illinois State University. I am beyond excited to continue my teaching career here at Oakview! 

I live in the area with my fiance and my 3 year old rescue pup, Duke. (This will be my last year teaching as Miss Midlock!) Some of my favorite things to do when I am not teaching are reading, running, shopping, watching Netflix, playing with my dog, and drinking Iced Coffee from Dunkin'.

Teaching is my passion and my favorite thing to do. I enjoy planning lessons and having fun with my students! If I make a student smile at the end of the day, then my day was successful. If you are looking for the most up-to-date resources, Google Classroom is the place to go. It is updated daily, whereas my website is updated as needed. 

I can always be reached via email, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me! I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
