Ms. CannonHello! My name is Ms. Deirdre Cannon and I am the fourth grade teacher at St. Vincent Ferrer School. This is my sixth year teaching at St. Vincent Ferrer.

I taught for nine years at St. Bernardine School in Forest Park, where I also attended as a young child.  I finished grade school at Holy Trinity in Westmont and attended Montini Catholic High School in Lombard.

I believe that children learn best by doing so I provide many hands on experiences in the classroom.  I also utilize flexible grouping to best meet each child’s specific needs.


Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Illinois State University

Masters Degree:  Masters of Arts in Education; Curriculum and Instruction from Dominican University


Type 04 Early Childhood Education

Type 03 General Education K-9 with Social Studies endorsement

When I’m not teaching I enjoy spending time with friends and family, attending Cubs games, and volunteering.
