Mrs. Mallari

     After working in River Trails District 26 for 18 years, I can truly say this is a community focused on bringing out the best in each child. I work at Indian Grove as an Interventionist, providing reading and math interventions for kindergarten through fifth grade students. I spent several years working at both Indian Grove and Euclid Elementary School as a Reading Specialist as well as a fourth and fifth grade teacher at Indian Grove early in my career.

      As a lifelong learner, I continue to look for opportunities to deepen my knowledge in the field of education. Most recently, I earned my Master's degree in Educational Administration and Leadership through the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2020. I am currently working on my ELL endorsement and will complete it in December 2020. I hold a B.A. in Elementary Education with Middle School Endorsements in Social Studies and English/Language Arts from Northeastern Illinois University and earned a Master's degree in Reading to become a certified Reading Specialist K-12 through the State of Illinois from Concordia University in 2008. 

     Because teaching does not end at the doors of our classrooms, I also serve on the IG Building RtI Team, Building Problem Solving Team, Teacher Learning Council, and the GFOA on Math Achievement Committee. I coordinate and manage the Virtual Summer School Lexia Program when school is out of session. During the summer of 2020, I co-coordinated the EL Virtual Summer School Program as well. 

     My time away from Indian Grove is spent outdoors with my three children, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, and trying to keep up with countless loads of laundry! 

     I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
