Ms. Kristin Lavelle

Hello! I am Ms. Lavelle. Here is a little background information about me: I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I majored in English and Secondary Education. I also attended Northner Illinois University, graduating with a Masters Degree in English/Composition in 2018. This is my 12th school year at OHS, where I have had the pleasure of teaching English 2, 3, British Literature, and AP Research. While at OHS, I have coached speech team, advised Student Council, and planned two educational tours to Europe. In 2014,2018, and 2019 I was honored to be nominated as a Most Influential Educator at the Top 10 Percent Banquet. Currently, I am enrolled at Eastern Illinois Univeristy to pursue a master's degree in Communications. In May 2021 I welcomed my son--Connor--to the world and enjoyed a great summer with him!
