Welcome to Third Grade! My name is Janelle Devore. This is my fifth year of teaching third grade for Bement Elementary. Before coming to this district, I taught 11 years for the East Alton Elementary School District in a combination of the third, fifth and sixth grades. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Eastern Illinois University. In addition, I received a Master's degree in Instructional Technology from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.
I now live in Monticello, Illinois with my husband, two daughters, and my energetic pup. In my spare time I like to enjoy nature by riding my bike and exploring. However, in the evenings I am usually a "taxi driver" bringing my girls to all their extra curricular activities.
Third grade is a challenging year and we will have so much fun learning together. It is important that we communicate and work as a team. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any ideas or questions that might help your child succeed. I am looking forward to our third grade journey!
