Hello! My name is Mrs. Erin Gocke. This is my eighth year teaching in Palos 118, and I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade!  I graduated from the University of Notre Dame where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. During my time at Notre Dame, I enrolled in a teacher certification program at Saint Mary’s College. After finishing school, I moved to Chicago where I taught in the Chicago Public Schools system. In my four years with the Chicago Public Schools, I taught 2nd grade for one year and 1st grade for three years. While working with Chicago Public Schools, I completed a dual degree program in which I received a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction as well as a Masters in Teacher Leadership from American College of Education.  Currently, I am working on an endorsement for teaching English Language Learners.  I am very excited to be a part of the third grade team at Palos West. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive learning environment for the students in order to help them become confident life-long learners.
