Mrs. Michelle Essert


I am the K-2 RTI teacher; I provide interventions to small groups of students in reading and math.  This is my 17th year in education and my fourth year in District 90.  My family and I relocated to O'Fallon from central Illinois in the summer of 2019 to be closer to family.  

My everyday goal is to teach students the strategies and thinking needed to become successful readers who can comprehend text as well as give students the confidence and ability to think in order to develop mathematically.  

I am excited about working with Schaefer students and families!
