Ms. Gretchen Wheatley
Welcome to the 2020/2021 school year at Brokaw Early Learning Center. My name is Gretchen Wheatley and I am excited to be teaching at Brokaw. I have been teaching Early Childhood Special Education in sd308 for 3 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and a Special Education endorsement from Bradley University and am currently in grad school for an ESL degree. I spent 1999-2007 teaching self-contained classrooms in CUSD 200 and at Little Friends in Naperville before taking time off to raise my twin daughters. I started as a substitute teacher in sd308 when they started 1st grade at the Wheatlands, and loved being back in the classroom so much that I decided to come back full time in 2017. They are in 7th grade this year at Bednarcik Jr. High. My husband and I have lived in the district for 15 years and love being a part of such a caring community. In my free time I love reading, cooking and being outside.
