Second Grade

   Meet Mrs. Lisa Cochran

My name is Lisa Cochran and I have been teaching Third Grade at OLMC since 1984 and will be teaching Second Grade this year.  My husband Jeff and I have two daughters, Rina and Jenna.  This is my favorite age because the students are eager to learn and have wonderful personalities! One of my main goals in third grade is to make learning fun.  I try to prepare the children to be both organized and responsible students.  I like to challenge them with research and writing assignments.  

I feel like everyday is a new adventure in learning for me and my class.  Technology has given us the ability to be anywhere in the world while sitting in our classroom.  We can visit the Shedd Aquarium without ever traveling to Chicago!  We have information, pictures, and interactive programs available at the touch of a button.  This makes learning exciting for all of us.

Meet Mrs. MaryEdna Russell

Hello, my name is MaryEdna Russell.  I have the pleasure of teaching Second Grade here at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School.

Every day brings adventure and eager participation with seven and eight year olds in the classroom!  I find that one of the many rewards of teaching is sharing their excitement, curiosity and love of learning.  Second Grade is the year of preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion.  It is a privilege to be a part of that experience.  My hope is that children leave my class feeling they have grown academically, socially, and spiritually.  I want them to be proud of what they have accomplished and feel they are an important part of the class, school and church community.

I attended the University of Illinois and completed my degree at Southern Illinois University.  I graduated from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in 1969, and returned to teach here in 1985.  I have seen such amazing growth in our school!  Thank you for choosing Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School!
