Congratulations Mrs. Uehlein!

Mrs. Kelly Uehlein was nominated for Kane County Educator of the Year.  On Friday, May 2, she won the Regional Superintendent Award!  This is a very prestigious honor and we are so proud that Mrs. Uehlein teaches at Lakewood. 

Mrs. Uehlein is a 5th grade English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher at Lakewood School. She has proudly taught in District 300 for 18 years, with the last 12 at Lakewood. Kelly holds a Master Certificate in Early/Middle Childhood: Reading and Language Arts, and she holds a Reading Specialist Certificate. Kelly was encouraged by her mom to take Spanish as a 7th grader and eventually fell in love with learning this new language. She continued to immerse herself in Spanish courses throughout school and began to enjoy learning about other cultures such as Japanese. Kelly combined this experience of learning a new language herself with the desire to teach children. Through her experiences of learning new languages, Kelly is able to connect with students who are learning English and help them to become their very best.
