Mrs. Losnedahl's Fifth Grade Class
My name is Maleesa and I am excited to join the Churchill Elementary School family. I have taught in the South Suburbs for 17 years serving as a fifth-grade teacher and instructional technology coach. I also teach coding classes at the Homewood Science Center which has been extremely enjoyable.
I have two children Maya (23) and Drew (11) and am married to my husband Erik. During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and my cat Muffy. We enjoy hiking, gardening, and cooking.
I enjoy incorporating nature into my classroom activities. Plants and animals are often topics that we will learn , and I hope to get students excited about the natural world.
I entered the teaching profession because I have a passion for learning and fostering that love in my students. I am committed to creating lessons that are engaging, impactful, and fun while creating a learning environment where students feel comfortable with the learning process.
Open communication and family partnerships create positive learning experiences. Please feel free to contact me via Class Dojo, email, or by phone.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year and I cannot wait to meet all my new students.
