Hello, I’m Mrs. Tillery, and I am thrilled to be a part of the MYP team at CFI 84! As the MYP Language & Literature teacher, I’m excited to work with students and families to continue the awesome work for which CFI 84 is known. While I have served as both assistant principal and principal in private schools, this is my 20th year of teaching Language Arts – my 30th year in education!-, and I LOVE what I do!
My hope for this year is to challenge all students to step out of their comfort zone and dig deeper into literature. I also want students to gain confidence in writing.
When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Steve; my two children – Lauren and Kevin; my amazing grandson, Noah; and the best rescue-dog ever, Layla. We love to travel, attend IU football games, watch Kevin golf for IUPUI, attend Noah’s numerous activities, and watch movies. I enjoy cooking, reading, exploring trails, and relaxing in our backyard oasis.
