Mary Grace Noteman
1st Grade Teacher
Mary Grace graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana with a degree in Elementary Education and minors in Reading and Mild Intervention. While student teaching in the South Bend public school system, she gained valuable classroom insight in special education and first grade instruction. Mary Grace’s decision to join Embers Academy in 2021 was fueled by seeing how deeply each teacher cares about the formation of their students. She emphasizes this same caring nature in her own classroom, helping each student learn how to be respectful and responsible.
A passionate Cubs fan, Mary Grace enjoys spending her summers at the ballpark or taking walks along the lakefront with friends and family. She is a member of St. Alphonsus Church in Chicago.
