Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Rachel Fitzgerald

I attended Illinois State University, in Normal, IL, where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. I also attended the University of St Francis, in Joliet, IL,  where I received my master's degree in educational leadership. I have also continued my education through the University of LaVerne and have taken 47 hours of graducate courses as well.   I have taught one year of kindergarten and 16 years of first grade between both Lakewood Creek and Grande Park Elementary in District 308. I had the pleasure of being one of the few teachers who opened Grande Park Elementary and have enjoyed watching the school grow over the years. 

Teaching is one of my passions. I enjoy spending time fostering the growth of children and watching them become lifelong learners!
