Ms. Julene Freund

My name is Julene Freund, and this is my first year teaching at Brokaw.  I recently moved to the Plainfield area from Crystal Lake, where I taught in their Early Childhood program for the past 10 years.  Prior to that, I also taught kindergarten.  This is my 16th year teaching, and I am thrilled to begin my next chapter as a part of the Brokaw Family!

I graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in English, then went on to earn my M.A. at National-Louis University in early childhood education. I hold an Early Childhood Type 04 Teaching License, and I have my Special Education and my ELL endorsements.  

I currently live in Plainfield with my significant other, Brian.  He and I keep busy traveling, playing tennis, and spending time with our niece and nephews. We also have 2 active dogs to keep us busy!

I am looking forward to getting to know the area, and all of the wonderful Brokaw families!
