Hello. My name is Jim Kavanaugh. I have been teaching in Marseilles Elementary Schools since the Fall of 1986. Previously, I had taught in Decatur, Illinois.
My education began at Our Lady of the Wayside in Arlington Heights, Illinois where I attended for eight years of elementary education. Next, I continued my high school education at Arlington Heights High School. Upon graduation, I attended Quincy University in Quincy, Illinois. where I majored in Elementary Education with a Reading minor.
During these past years, I taught in the First thru Fifth Grade Reading Classroom,
Third Grade Classroom and Sixth Grade Language. Each of these assignments proved to be rewarding and growing experiences.
