    I look forward to a terrific third year at North Prairie Junior High! Although this is my third year at NPJH it is my 17th year of teaching. Prior to teaching at NPJH I taught 14 years in school district U-46. There I taught English, reading, social studies and AVID at Ellis Middle School in Elgin, Illinois. A move brought me back to this area. Prior to teaching I was a corporate meeting planner for American Express inside SC Johnson.
    I hold a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education as well as a Master's in Reading. I am a Reading Specialist with an endorsement in English as a Second Language. I believe that life-long learning is key to effective teaching. I am a member of the International Literacy Association and National Council of Teachers of English. I am dedicated to providing my students with an exceptional educational experience.
    In my free time, in addition to reading, I enjoy spending time with family, running and baking. One of my favorite places is the area is the RecPlex.
    I sincerely look forward to working with you and your child this school year. Please feel free to contact me anytime. The best way to reach me is via email mskinner@sta.whsd1.org
