Mrs. Lori Fink
Hello, my name is Mrs. Lori Fink and I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year at Oak View. For the past seven years, I have been co-teaching second grade at Kenneth L. Hermansen Elementary in Romeoville. Before that, I was a transition job coach in the Special Education Department at Bolingbrook High School. I have dual certification to teach both Elementary (K-9) and Special Education (3-21). I also have two Master's Degrees - one in Differentiated Instruction, one in Educational Technology/Curriculum & Instruction, and I am a Google Certified Instructor.
My husband Jim and I live right here in Bolingbrook. We have four adult children and two grandchildren. We also have two dogs. When I am not working on school things, I enjoy crafting, scrapbooking, gardening, and camping.
I am so excited to be moving to first grade! First grade is a year of such amazing growth for students, and I am looking forward to helping them learn and grow in their independence as well as their academics!
The best way to reach me is through Seesaw, as I check it multiple times per day. Please allow time to respond, although usually it will be very quickly. You can also reach me by email. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you on your child's journey through first grade!
