Mrs. Klope

Hello! My name is Mrs. Klope and I am your child's Kindergarten teacher. I graduated SIU with my bachelors in early childhood education (birth-3rd grade) with a special education endorsement many years ago.This is my 6th year teaching here in Goreville and I feel blessed to be part of such a great community! My prior teaching experience includes kindergarten, 3rd grade, and pre-kindergarten. I always knew in my heart that I wanted to come back to kindergarten and I feel honored to be here!

          My husband and I share our passion for education. He is a math educator and is my best friend. We have three beautiful daughters together. Kaylee, our oldest, is in 8th grade, plays softball and volleyball, and wants to be a teacher someday. Eva, our middle one is full of spunk, always has a joke to say, and is in second grade. Our youngest is Oaklee, she always puts a smile on our face. She enjoys dancing and playing with her baby dolls. She is in kindergarten this year. We also have two fur babies, our dogs, Joe & Emy. 

          Everyday I am excited to come to work because I get to do what I love, educate sweet children. I put my whole heart into anything that I do and I thank you for sharing your precious children with me!

The futrure of the world is in my classroom today! This is going to be a fabulous year!
