Ms. Askounis' Bio
This is my 13th year of teaching in the Chicago Public Schools and my 9th year at Decatur. In my 13 years of teaching I have taught everything from 1st grade to 8th grade! Reading is one of my passions and I am very excited to be teaching 4th-6th grade reading. I received my undergraduate degree from DePauw University in elementary education and history. Later I attended DePaul University and received my master’s degree as a reading specialist with a focus in learning disabilities. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, figure skating and needlepoint. I'm even going to school at night to learn Greek!
