Welcome to Mr. Glees's second grade class!
It is going to be a great year! I am looking forward to meeting all of you; here is a little about myself. This will be my ninth year teaching, my third year in Higley, and my first year at Bridges. I attended Roosevelt University in Chicago where I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education. I then taught in the Chicago suburb of Barrington for six years as a substitute, fifth grade teacher, and fourth grade teacher. I moved here two years ago from the suburbs of Chicago with my wife Jessica. I taught fourth grade at Coronado Elementary for two years before coming to Bridges. I am excited to be teaching second grade, and being a part of Bridges Elementary. Some of you may recognize me as the boys' basketball coach last year. I look forward to coaching them again this year.
So here's a fun fact: my wife I are expecting a new edition to our family in January! It will be our first child! If I look like I have not been sleeping much come February, you will know why!
UPDATE: Skylar Glees was born 1/5/19 and is the sweetest, most beautiful baby! Mom and daughter are great.
I love learning and teaching. I also love baseball (Go Cubs! 2016 World Series Champions!), and listening to and playing music. I am glad to be here in second grade and at Bridges. The staff is fantastic and there will be so many opportunities for exploring and learning!I am looking forward to a great year with all of you!
