Meet Miss Dietrich!
Hello! My name is Miss Dietrich and I am very excited to be teaching 5th grade at Dryden this year! This is my fifth year teaching and my third year teaching 5th grade at Dryden. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in elementary education. GO ILLINI! I received my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Olivet Nazarene University. Before coming to Dryden, I spent two years teaching in Fox River Grove, where I taught both 3rd and 4th grade. I completed my student teaching in a 4th grade classroom at Greenbrier.
Teaching at Dryden is truly special for me because I am a former Dryden Dolphin! I loved my time as a student at Dryden so much that I decided to become a teacher! I feel extremely lucky to have the privilege of now getting to teach here! :)
When I'm not teaching, I love to read all kinds of books, especially realistic fiction, mysteries, and historical fiction. My favorite authors are Louis Sachar, Andrew Clements, J.K. Rowling, and Suzanne Collins. I also have a passion for music and enjoy playing the piano, clarinet and ukulele. Other hobbies of mine include calligraphy, solving sudoku puzzles, and yoga. Finally, I am a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan and enjoy watching Cubs games with my family.
