Hello, and welcome to First Grade! My name is Kimberly Manno and this is my second full year at MES. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my fiance Matthew and our two cats Autumn and Clementine. My hobbies include teaching hip hop and lyrical dance. I am huge Chicago Cubs and Blackhawks fan and enjoy playing and watching sports.
I started working with children at an early age, I then went on to get my Bachelors in Science in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University. I started at MES as a long term sub in January of 2016 and have been working in First grade since. At MES I have many roles I am the 5/6th grade cheerleading coach as well as being the Student Council Supervisor. My roles however do not stop there I am a leader within the PBIS team and work with our team to analyze behavior data within our school setting. I look forward to getting to know you and your learners and it is going to be a great year!
