Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Lisa Circelli

I attended Western Illinois University where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a specialization in early childhood education.  I have also obtained my master’s degree from Benedictine University in reading and literacy. I also received my LBS1-Learning Behavior Specialist certification.

I have taught in kindergarten, first and second grade and pre-kindergarten.  Since I joined the Kendall County Special Education Cooperative/School District 308 in the 2005-2006 school year, I’ve taught pre-kindergarten (before Brokaw and beyond) and kindergarten (East View).  I helped to start the STARS program eight years ago at Brokaw and taught that program for two years.  I taught in the STARS program at the elementary level for a couple years. I am currently a LBS teacher at Southbury in the AM and The Wheatlands in the PM.

I have always wanted to do work with children ever since I can remember. I always found myself rounding up the little kids and teaching school to them.  I have worked in day care settings and, while exploring a career, discovered that elementary/early childhood education is what I was looking to pursue. I am very grateful to have worked with all the children and families that I have.  In all the experience we have helped each other to grow.  No day is ever the same and that helps to keep a fresh outlook and perspective.  I love watching the children grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially.
