THERESA KUBASAK'S BIOGRAPHY



Theresa in front of the Bank Street Bookstore, New York City

Currently Theresa is teaching third grade at Baker Demonstration School, the lab school for National Louis University, where she is an associate professor. A long time lover of folk music, she designed and implemented this thematic, integrated curriculum with her second/third graders. Theresa is the 2002 recipient of Chicago's Kohl-McCormick Early Childhood Award and is noted for her innovation. If you peek into Theresa's classroom you may hear her students belting out "Union Maid," "Roll on Columbia" or all 14 verses of "Dust Storm Disaster." Theresa put her own two children to bed every night by singing "Hobo's Lullaby." Theresa is an active member of Old Town School of Folk Music as well as The Chicago Area Writing Project. She is a frequent presenter at the Illinois Reading Council. For more insight read about her class at the demonstration school in Harvey Daniels' Literature Circles: Voice and Choice in Book Clubs (Stenhouse Publications, 2002).
