Welcome to Mrs. Nowak's Fabulous Fourth Grade!!!

We are off to a great start.

My name is Dorothy Nowak and I have been teaching full time at St. Christopher School for 20 years and consider it my home away from home. As parents, my husband and I chose to send our own three children to this school for their elementary years. During that time and beyond I was not only a volunteer parent but also I was a substitute teacher in grades K-8. My educational background is a Bachelor of Science in Education received from Chicago State University. As a parent, substitute teacher, full time teacher, I have always appreciated and respected the outstanding education the children have received and a sense of community that St. Christopher School offers.

I am proud of our school and the people who make it special, its students, teachers and YOU, the parents!

Our goals are to provide a classroom atmosphere in which through understanding, encouragement, and building good work and study habits, our children can learn to become caring and responsible individuals
