Hi, my name is Ms. Maria Schnaufer and I am very excited to be part of the Plato community of learners. I have been a classroom teacher for the last 30 years, and recently retired from CPS. I received my undergraduate degree from Northeastern Illinois University in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and my Masters Degree as a Reading Specialist from Concordia University.

This is one of my favorite quotes:
“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” -J.K. Rowling

I truly believe there is a book out there that will change a child’s life forever and that child will become a lifelong learner.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year filled with many new learning opportunities. A year of fun, inquiry, explorations and discovery.
