Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kelly Sullivan

I have worked in Valley View School District for 9 years. I grew up in Hickory Hills, Illinois and then headed off to college at Concordia University in Irvine, California. I graduated and came back to Illinois to begin my teaching career. I earned my certificate to teach Special Education and have a Master’s Degree in Reading. I also completed my Master’s in Education with an English as a Second Language Endorsement. 

I have taught a variety of grade levels ranging from K-4. I have enjoyed the experience of working with different grade levels. I love my role as a reading specialist because I get to continue to work with students in different grades and focus on teaching them literacy skills. My goal is to help every student find joy in reading and the passion to be a life-long learner!
