• Welcome to 5th Grade
    My name is Diane Watson and I will be your child's teacher this year.  I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year, as well as getting to know your child. 
    This is my 31st year in the district.  While I have taught several grades, I have been in 5th grade for the last 15 years save 1 year in 6th grade.  I have enjoyed my time in the district and look forward to another year.
    I am the proud mother of 2 children, my daughter Jamie and my son Jon.  They have blessed me with 5 granddaughters. Jamie's 3 daughters are Brynn who is 8 and going into 3rd grade, Audrey who is 5 and starting kindergarten, and Eliza who is 2 and into everything.  Jon's 2 daughters are Alice who is 4 and starting 4K this year and Anna who is just 4 months old. They keep me busy and out of trouble.  I enjoy spending as much time as I can with all of them.
    Once again, I look forward to having a wonderful year working with your child.
    If you ever need to contact me or have questions please send me a note, give me a call (847-731-3089), or send me an email (dwatson@sta.whsd1.org).  I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.
