Mrs. Molly Ackerman
I am so excited to be teaching at Grundy! I can honestly say I have never felt more welcome from the Grundy staff, administration, district office, and the community! What a great way to start the year!
I was born and raised in Bloomington/Normal. I attended Illinois State University, and graduated with my Bachelors in Elementary Education in 2013. In May of 2017, I graduated with my Masters in Teaching and Learning from Illinois State University as well.
The past four years, I have been teaching in Bloomington/Normal in the Unit 5 school district. I have spent the last two years teaching 4th grade, and the two years before that, teaching 2nd grade. My heart is in the primary grades, so I am very excited to be teaching 1st grade at Grundy!
My fiance, Tyler, and I are getting married this September. We have a Golden Retriever named Bo. In my free time, I like to play tennis, go hiking, and spend time with family.
Being an educator is truly a passion of mine, and I am so lucky to see students grow and learn throughout the year. A goal for all of my students is to reach their fullest potential, all while enjoying themselves and loving school.
