About the Teacher

  • My name is Cheri Fauser.   I grew up in Lindenhurst, but now live here in Antioch.  I have a 6 year old son, Easton, a 3 year old daughter, Evelyn, and 3 cats.  This is my twenty-first year working with children, my fourteenth year teaching Kindergarten, but my first year here at W.C. Petty.


    I graduated from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale in December 2004.  In 2004, I student taught at Hillcrest with Kristina Guntharp, who is now our Interim Director for Teaching & Learning for the district.  In 2005 I taught in the Early Childhood Self-Contained classroom in the green village.  Then, I taught in the purple village in the K-1 Instructional Special Education Classroom.
     

    Some of my favorite things are; comedy/chick flick movies, flip flops, cats, shopping, hanging out outside, watching reality TV shows, being with my 2 kids, and hanging out with my family and friends. 

     
    My favorite color is purple.

    My favorite fast food restaurants are Subway & Portillos.
     
    My favorite restaurants are Buffalo Wild Wings & Olive Garden.
     
    My favorite stores are Old Navy & Target.
     
    My favorite coffee is Dunkin Donuts.

              I absolutely love my job and watching little ones grow.  The Kindergarteners make my day every day.  It's so wonderful to see them grow so much throughout the school year and to see how excited they are in return.

    I feel that open communication between a child’s home and school is very important.  Please feel free to contact me at any time throughout the school year if you have any questions or concerns.  I can be contacted via phone at (847) 838-_____ or by e-mail at cfauser@antioch34.com.  Please note that the phone in my classroom will not ring during school hours.  You may leave me a voicemail and I will return your call within 24 to 48 hours.
