Mrs. Patti Gebner

Hello!  My name is Patti Gebner and this is my 11th year teaching Multilingual Learners at Emerson, and my 14th year working in D200.  Previously, I taught fourth and fifth grades and ELL in public and private schools around the Chicago area.  As an EL teacher, I work with students in their general education classrooms and in small group settings where we work on improving our speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English.
My family has lived in Wheaton for 20 years and my children have attended Lowell Elementary, Franklin Middle School, and WNHS! We are happy to call Wheaton our home.
