Rebecca Garretson

Hello!  My name is Rebecca Garretson and I have been teaching in Winfield School District 34 since 2008.  Currently I am one of the Learning Behavior Specialists (LBS) in District 34.  I obtained my Bachelors degree in Special Education from Northern Illinois University in 2005 and my Masters in Reading and Literacy from Benedictine University in 2010.  In May, 2014, I completed my English as a Second Language endorsement through Benedictine University as well.  I believe learning is an on going process that doesn't end.  I LOVE what I do and can't wait to see my students each day.  When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family.

Amanda Maletich

Hi! I am Amanda Maletich, a Learning Behavior Specialist at Winfield School. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in special education. I began my career at Winfield School in 1998. I taught here until 2008 when I chose to be at home and raise my three children. In the meantime I also taught preschool in Wheaton for 5 years. I returned to Winfield School in 2020. It has been wonderful to be back! You can find me in the preschool or the primary grades working with a variety of students. I like to find ways to make learning fun! When I'm not at work, I am spending time with my busy family. I love to cheer for my kids at their sport games, go out to dinner, go for walks, and travel.
