Ms. Ales

Hello! My name is Cathy Ales and I will be your child’s 6th grade Language Arts teacher.  This is my fifth year teaching but I have been employed in Valley View for the past 10 years.  My teaching career started back in 2005 right here at Brooks Middle School; I was hired as a Bilingual Support Educational Aide.  During my time at Brooks I completed my Bachelors at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights. I have been at RCHill and Independence Elementary during the last few years. I have recently graduated from Concordia University with a Masters in Differentiated Instruction. 

I look forward to working with you and your student this school year.  I wanted to share some information about myself formally.  I grew up right here in Bolingbrook.  Shortly after I was married my husband and I moved to North Carolina. Yes, my better half was in the service.  My oldest son was born in North Carolina and my youngest in Landstul Germany.  We returned home and have been in Bolingbrook for the past 19 years. 

I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work with your child.  Please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to building a positive learning environment for all students.
