Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Janie McBrayer

Welcome to Reading!

I attended Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. After only teaching for a year, I decided to pursue my master’s degree. I then attended St. Francis University in Joliet, Ill. My master’s degree is in teaching and learning with a concentration in reading. To further my education, I continued to take many classes beyond my master’s degree. In 2009 I achieved National Board Certification in early and middle childhood Reading and Language Arts. I have taught in school district 308 since 2002. I taught first grade for 11 years, five years at Boulder Hill and then six years at Wolf’s Crossing. This year, I decided to join the Reading team and I’m looking forward to a great year at Old Post. Go Wildcats!
