Hello! My name is Miss Hellige, and I am so excited for this school year. I can’t wait to work with my kindergarten students and their families. I absolutely love being a teacher, and I am proud to say that this is my tenth year at Bateman School!
I grew up in Western Springs, IL and spent my college years studying Psychology at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN. After college, I moved to Chicago and attended North Park University earning my degree in Early Childhood Education. When I’m not teaching or coaching soccer, I’m always looking for my next adventure! I love running marathons, sailing, snowboarding, traveling, and even skydiving! When I’m in Chicago, I enjoy watching my favorite television shows, reading, going out with friends, and spending time with my niece and nephew. I also like cheering on my favorite sports teams. I love the Chicago Bulls and the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish!!
I would love the opportunity to get to know you better and answer any questions you may have about our class. You can reach me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), a note in your child's homework folder, or by setting up an appointment. I look forward to working with you this school year!
