My name is Dana Mallar. This is my 8th year teaching and 6th year in Sycamore at Southeast Elementary. I have taught 2nd grade, 4th grade and Kindergarten. I received my undergrad in Elementary Education from Aurora University. I also have a Master’s degree in Building Leadership and hope to follow in my dad’s footsteps of being a Principal one day. Recently, I received my English Language Learners endorsement from NIU. I love continuing education! I come from a long line of teachers and excellent role models from both parents who are now retired educators.
My husband and I have lived in Sycamore for three years. After beginning to work here, we realized we wanted to be a part of this great community. We live with his four sons part time, our huge dog Si, and soon to be boy and girl twins of our own! I am expecting my first and second babies in early November and can not wait. Family is most important to me and I look forward to teaching yours!
