Tera Painter is delighted to join the wonderful staff at PCCS. She graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and an endorsement in Language Arts. Her PCCS journey began in August of 2010 in a 3rd and 4th grade multi-age classroom. When entering the field of education, Mrs Painter was torn between deciding which of her two favorite grades to teach, and therefore is delighted to have the opportunity to teach them both! Mrs. Painter is captivated by the opportunity to bring students closer to nature, as an alternative to sharing nature in a confined classroom space. Some of her fondest memories as a child were spent exploring forest preserves, camping, and horseback riding with her family.

As an adult, Mrs. Painter still expresses her inner-child through adventures in the outdoor world. She can be found walking forest preserve trails, spending time with her countless animals, gardening, biking, and reading. She also enjoys sketching, painting, and most of all, pottery. One of her goals for the year is to explore the unknown in the depths of her kitchen. 

Mrs. Painter feels extremely fortunate to have found such an exceptional teaching and learning environment at PCCS.
