Mrs. Eva Schutter
I teach English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) here at MCHS. This is my fifth year teaching ESL and I am excited to be part of the Morris community! I received an English degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with an emphasis in language and linguistics. Upon returning to Illinois, I obtained my teaching degree along with a master's from the University of St. Francis. I have been married for eight years and together we have a three year old daughter.
I teach three courses: Transitional English (ESL), Transitional US History, and Transitional History of Western Civilization. In ESL, the student learns all four areas of literacy: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The material is taught in sequence, starting with the most basic grammar and vocabulary and becoming more difficult over time.
