Thank America's Teachers-Showcase A. Schaaf Proposal

The Farmer Insurance Company Sponsored Thank America's Teacher would like to spotlight A. Schaaf' Teacher at Parkview Elementary School in Steger, Illinois.  As a dedicated teachers, she has been with the district for 12 years and at Parkview for 5 years.  

Wanting to help children learn is what led her to pursue becoming a teacher.  As she gained experience as a teacher it increased her passion for learning.  A passion she aspires to pass on to her young students.  Her proposal would bring alive creativity in her students.


Ms. Schaaf plans to use the Thank America's Teacher grant to invest in creating a Literary Focus Environment. Her purchases will include high interest books to peak children's interest. Letter and word recognition games that challenge students and allow social interaction.  Flash cards and manipulatives (such as letter tiles and rubber stamps) to provide a hands on experience for practicing words and reading structure. Posters and teaching resources that encourage and reinforce skills.  She also plans to purchase special book bags for students to foster a personal interest in books.

In addition, she would set up listening centers and writing resources to show how  the learning and reading experience enriches a person for a lifetime. She looks forward to providing her students with the keys to become successful readers.
