Mr. Elias Tsiakopoulos
Hello! My name is Elias Tsiakopoulos. I look forward to providing your child with an environment that is accepting, individualizing, and challenging. Above anything else, I want your child to have a happy and positive experience in our classroom.
I’d like to begin by telling you a bit about myself. I graduated from Indiana University Northwest with a degree in Elementary/Special Education in May 2016. After graduating, I was offered a position through the Northwest Indiana Special Education Cooperative. During my first year teaching, I was given the opportunity to work in the ED classroom. I worked with students from K-5th grade. Throughout the year, I grew as a teacher and made significant progress. At the end of the year, I was given the opportunity to apply for the fifth grade position, which I would eventually accept.
Personally, I was raised in Dyer, IN and I am the oldest of three boys. My family owns the Omelette House in Schererville, IN. Besides teaching and working at the restaurant, some of my other interests include sports, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family and friends.
I hope that we all have the chance to work together as educational partners for your child this year. I am fully committed to having an open line of communication between us, as that will be an important part of success this year. Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, or other comments you may have throughout the school year. I will also be in touch with you regularly. Thank you, and best wishes for a successful year!
