Welcome to 4th Grade! My name is Michelle LeBaron and I am thrilled to be teaching your children at Hancock Elementary. I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year!

My Education and Professional Background

I was born and raised here in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. In 2010, graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. In 2014, I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Reading from Grand Canyon State University.

My Educational Philosophy

My goal as your child's teacher is to build a strong classroom community where students can feel comfortable to take risks, in a safe environment. I believe students should be held to high expectations, in order to continue growing in a positive manner in and outside of school. I will create an engaging learning environment that allows students to learn when they have opportunities to discover and inquire.
