Welcome to Third Grade!
Hello, my name is Madeline DeVine. I just love teaching 3rd graders! I am currently in my 13th year of teaching, and my 8th year of teaching 3rd grade at Marie Schaefer. Teaching has truly always been a passion of mine. I adore kids and love watching them grow and learn. I enjoy building relationships with each and every child. Third grade is such a big milestone year, and I adore being a part of such a transitional time in their school career.
I currently live in O' Fallon with my husband and 2 daughters, Emersyn(7) and Camryn(2). During my free time, I like to spend time with my family and friends. I also love to travel, shop, and I may have a slight Starbucks addiction :)
I attended Southeast Missouri State University, SIUE, and then graduated from McKendree University with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with endorsements in Language Arts and Social Sciences. I was a 3rd grade teacher at Illini in Fairview Heights for 1 year and then I moved to District #90. I was then a Reading Interventionist Aide for 1 year and taught kindergarten for 3 years. Prior to having my own classroom, I was a substitute teacher in the surrounding cities teaching all grade levels from K-8th grade.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of my new students and families. I hope to guide my students along the way to becoming successful and ready for 4th grade!
