About Mr. Jonathan Field
My name is Jonathan Field and I am the seventh grade special education teacher at Riverton Middle School. I teach writing and math and I also co-teach two hours of reading with Mrs. Mendenhall and Mrs. Barrett.
This is my sixth year at Riverton and my seventh year of full time teaching. I love teaching in Riverton and I have really enjoyed my time at the Middle School! I have been exceptionally lucky to work with some really great teachers and students since starting here in 2007.
I am from a small town in Southern Illinois called McLeansboro and Riverton really reminds me of home. I grew up a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan and that is one trait that I have never outgrown! I also spend alot of my free time playing and listening to music. I love singing and playing the guitar, fiddle, mandolin and whatever else I can get a hold of! I love all kinds of music from classical to rock'n'roll, especially The Beatles.
I have always enjoyed learning and I try to carry that love over to my classes by getting students excited about learning new things and expanding their horizons. My educational background started with my graduation from McLeansboro High School in 1999 and includes an Associates in Arts from Rend Lake College, a Bachelors in Music from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and a post-bachelor's certification in Special Education from Eastern Illinois University. I recenty finished my Master's Degree from EIU in Education Administration and it will mark the first time I have not been in school since 1986!
I take a great deal of pride in trying to prepare my students for 8th grade and more importantly their adult lives. I expect alot from the students I work with and in turn I expect alot from myself regarding meeting their needs to the best of my ability. Equally, I really enjoy getting to know all of the students I come into contact with and I genuinely hope that after our time together they learn about what it takes to be a good citizen as well as a good student.
