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

I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you on your child's journey through first grade!
