Ms. Kara Marshall
I attended Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill., and earned my bachelor’s degree in business administration in 2004. After years in the corporate world I was not happy with my career and searched to find what I was truly passionate about. I started substitute teaching in 2006 and immediately knew teaching was where my heart was. I went back to Aurora University and earned my master’s with teaching certificate in 2011. After graduating, I still wanted to learn more about how to help all students be successful, and I once again went back to Aurora University and obtained an endorsement as a learning behavioral specialist. I worked one year as a paraprofessional for the STARS program, and from there I knew that special education is where I wanted and needed to be. I started teaching in 2013 as a learning behavior specialist in District 308. I am inspired every day by my students, and I hope to inspire my students every day.
