Important Note: Remote Learning is currently in progress. All first and second grade Reading Intervention students that see me (Mrs. Tarkowski) will receive an e-mail each Monday with their reading assignments for the week. Third, fourth and fifth grade students will receive their assignment daily in my Google Classroom. All assignments will also be posted on my Remote Learning tab. If you have questions please feel free to reach out. I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy!

Hi! My name is Michelle Tarkowski and I am a Reading Intervention teacher here at W.C. Petty. This will be my fourteenth year teaching in Antioch School District 34. I first worked here at W.C. Petty for seven years as a classroom teacher (third and second grade). I then worked at AES as a Reading Specialist for two years.  I then came back to Petty as a second grade teacher and now I am an Intervention teacher. I graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. In June of 2009 I completed my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University in Wheeling, Illinois and in 2014 I completed my second Masters’s Degree in Reading and Literacy from Benedictine, University.

I have been married for 9 years to my husband, Mark. We live here in Antioch with our two adorable daughters, Kaylee, 4 1/2, and Carly 2 1/2. On the weekends we enjoy spending time with our families, playing games, doing arts and crafts, and going shopping. In the little spare time I have I enjoy arts and crafts, especially scrapbooking and making cards.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns. Communication and working together are important to a student’s success at school. I’m looking forward to working with all of you this year and developing a love of reading in all students!
