Mrs. LaBelle



Welcome to Shiloh Park School and welcome to Kindergarten.  My name is Susie LaBelle and I am delighted to be your child’s first teacher.  We are going to have a wonderful year and I am excited to get to know each and every child. 

I grew up in California and Arkansas and after I got married moved to Zion where my husband grew up.  I graduated from John Brown University with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education.  My husband and I live in Waukegan and we have 4 beautiful daughters.  

Some of the things that I like to do when I’m not in the classroom are reading, gardening, scrapbooking, helping people plan parties and events, trying new recipes, and spending time with my family.

I am very excited to have your child and am sure we will have a fun filled year with many reading, math and writing experiences.  You will be amazed at the transformation you see this year in their school work.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me here at school between 8:15 and 3:15 or write me a note, or you can also email me at  Please look over your child’s papers daily and clean out those Take Home Folders.  There is a side for “work to be left at home” and a side for “papers that need to be returned”.  

I am looking forward to a great year!
