Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Sue Carmody

I attended Loyola University, in Chicago, where I graduated with a master’s degree in general and special education. I taught special education in Chicago and surrounding suburbs for eight years, teaching students with social/emotional and learning disabilities. I taught students ranging from five to 21 years of age in therapeutic and self-contained classrooms. After that, I took a leave from the school system and ran a daycare in my home for seven years. I then returned to the school environment teaching special education in the Diagnostic and Instructional Skills programs for the Kendall County Special Education Cooperative where I have been for 11 years.

After attending three years of college in the medical field and wanting to work in pediatrics, I changed my major to education. I worked in a hospital setting as a teacher and not as a nurse. I eventually chose District 308 as the place to be. I have been part of the mentoring team and mentor the student teacher placement. I enjoy working with children and their families to make children successful in a challenging world.
