Welcome to 4 F/A! My name is Traci Freitag and I am thrilled to be an Oakdale Panther.
I grew up in Gurnee, IL and came to I.S.U to study elementary education. I taught 2nd grade in Mahomet, but have been at Oakdale for 22 years now. At Oakdale, I was a kindergarten teacher for 7 years and then got "promoted" to fourth grade. I love teaching this grade level, and I am so lucky to be at the best school with an amazing group of students and staff.
I live in Carlock with my husband. We are blessed with 2 of our own children and a few great foster children. Our son, Bobby, is a paramedic / firefighter for the Town of Normal. Our daughter, Andrea, is a merchandiser with Frito-Lay.
I love reading so much that I recently received my Master's Degree in reading and literacy. I hope I can spread my love of reading to your child!
Our classroom is always open to our parents. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns. I always look forward to working with parents so we can best meet the children's needs.
