River Trails School District 26
Teacher on Special Assignment/Instructional Coach
Mt. Prospect, IL
Mary Flessas, River Trails School District 26, Teacher on Assignment, is a passionate educator and lifelong learner with twenty years of experience in elementary education. She enjoys using technology and student-centered learning to inspire, motivate, and foster creativity. Her goal is to cultivate eager, enthusiastic children and teachers that have a true excitement for learning. She believes that there isn’t anything children cannot achieve if they are provided differentiated engaging activities, motivation, and confidence, all which are fostered by genuine relationships and rigorous expectations. Authentic learning occurs when children can pursue their passions, feel confident to take risks, and learn from failure. It is then that they will adapt, innovate, and discover how to proceed, with the student as leader and the teacher as facilitator, encourager and supporter.
