Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sheila Lostumbo
I’ve been teaching for over 20 years in different bilingual and dual language programs. I graduated from Geneva College in Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a B.A. in Spanish. I also have a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with ESL, the Reading Specialist license, and the Bilingual/ESL endorsement. In addition, I achieved National Board Certification in 2002 and recertified as an NBCT in 2011. I have worked as a classroom teacher, EL Resource Teacher, Reading Recovery & DLL Teacher, Interventionist and Reading Specialist. I’ve also taught English as a Second Language to adult learners. In addition to working in different districts in the Chicagoland area, I’ve had the opportunity to live, study and teach in Central and South America. I’m looking forward to a great year of reading with students!
