Mrs. Lynn Clausen

I joined the faculty of School District 308 in 2009 after teaching beginning high school Spanish for nine years in District 155 in Crystal Lake, IL and taking time off to raise my children. I began my career in District 308 in the ELL program at Bednarcik, Plank, and Thompson Junior High Schools. In 2011 I started teaching eighth grade language arts at Bednarcik and then moved to Murphy Junior High when it opened in 2012. I am now teaching seventh grade honors language arts and 8th grade language arts.

My education began at Ball State University in Muncie, IN where I earned my bachelor’s degree in secondary education. I completed my master’s degree at National Louis University in Chicago in curriculum and instruction, and I have also earned an ELL endorsement from National Louis University and a middle school endorsement from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL.

I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, and it really is a part of who I am. I am at home in a classroom filled with teenagers.
