B.A. in English Education Certified teacher of Secondary English & Psychology

Ms. Elizabeth Minarich

I am a graduate of Illinois State University class of 2018 where I received my degree in English Education and have been working as an educator since. I have been a member of the Bolingbrook High School Staff since 2019 and being a Raider continues to be an amazing experience. I currently instruct English 9 Standard and AP Language and Composition. Every year it is such a joy to meet my students and watch them learn and progress and I look forward to continuing on this journey of growth with my students this year.

I believe English is critically important because it empowers our young people to express themselves, voice their opinions, and become advocates for their communities. English provides the tools necessary to navigate a digital world and stand up for what we believe in. I hope that by the end of the year, my students feel capable in their abilities, proud of their work, and excited to continue on their academic journey.

Outside of the classroom, you might find me in the A-wing assisting with the fall play or musical! I have theatrical background from my time at ISU in lights, sound, and performance and have previously served my schools as a technical director and director of costumes.
