• Hello!  My name is Karin Duchow and I teach kindergarten at Southside.  I grew up in a small town in northern Illinois and then attended Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, IA.  While at Cornell, I received my degree in Elementary Education, with a focus in ESL, and also met my wonderful husband, Jack.

    Jack and I have two wonderful children, Jackson and Emelia, both who attend Southside.  Our family is also blessed with our household "zoo" - Dresden, our 3-year-old Golden Retriever; Piglet, our 14-year-old cat; Maddie - our 1-year-old guinea pig; and our 8 various types of fish.

    In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, knitting, cooking, watching all types of sports, but most of all - teaching and learning! :)
