My name is Ms. Pam Alimissis and I teach 8th Grade Math and Science at Hawthorn Middle School North.
I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I am endorsed in Math, Science, Language Arts and ESL. I have previously taught in several middle school classrooms as well as 3rd and 4th grade.
In my class you will learn about a ton of new concepts and skills as well as making real world connections. It is my goal for students to become hard working and caring students as well as citizens. Students will not only learn key concepts and skills that can be applied in the future, but also be exposed to social emotional learning, which will allow them to grow and flourish as amazing human beings!
Cool fact! I am also a yoga instructor, I love bring exercise and movement into my classroom. I teach a variety of different types of group fitness. My favorite classes to teach are bootcamp, spin and hot yoga. I like to incorporate mini yoga flows throughout the day which can help students clear their minds and reset their bodies.
Hobbies: Yoga, working out, spending time with friends and family, playing with my dog
