     Welcome to Ms. Theodore's EL Page!
     
     My passion is teaching and advocating for English Language Learners at Hawthorne! I previously taught 2nd grade at Hawthorne and EL at Sandburg Elementary.  I am a graduate of the University of Illinois and National-Louis University and have a Master's Degree in Teaching with endorsements in EL and Reading.  I live in Glen Ellyn (where I grew up) and have three wonderful children who are young adults.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, baking, gardening, and traveling to the University of Wisconsin to watch my son’s swim meets. It is also my pleasure to be able to work with all the fantastic students in CLEF Club, Homework Club, and Ecology Club!
