First Grade

                                 Meet Mrs. Lisa Cochran

My name is Lisa Cochran and I have been teaching at OLMC since 1984 and will be teaching First 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 first 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.

first grade 2

Lori HHello!  My name is Lori Haake  and I teach 1st Grade here at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School.  I have been teaching since 1990.  My teaching career began at this school. I taught in the public school system for 13 years, but returned to OLMC in 2005.  Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach 1st through 5th grades.

I live in Herrin with my husband Chris, and my three sons, Harrison (an OLMC graduate), Carson and Mason, who are currently enrolled here in school.  They are the 3rd generation alumni in our family next to my father and myself.  I really enjoy teaching children at this level, and hope your child enjoys it as well!
