Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sue Hearne
This is my 7th year at Thompson Junior High School as a Special Education Teacher. The 2020-2021 school year marks my 10th year in education. I attended Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, where I received my bachelor’s degree in computer science. After working in the Information Technology field for nearly 20 years, I decided it was time for a career change. Once I began working with students with individual needs, I knew this was the career for me. I then attended Illinois’ Aurora University where I received my master’s degree in special education. This year, I am teaching 6th and 8th grade Direct Math and Study Skills classes. I’m looking forward to another exciting school year.
