Mrs. Fortin



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Fortin

My name is Michelle Fortin, and I am delighted to be a second-grade teacher. This is my twentieth year of teaching; I have taught kindergarten through sixth grade as both a classroom teacher and an interventionist. Canterbury is very special to me since I started my teaching career here as a student teacher.


I received my Master’s Degree from Rockford College with an emphasis in reading. Later, I received my Reading Teacher Endorsement and my Learning Behavior Specialist 1 Endorsement. Last summer I began a Science and Math Master's program.  I love to learn, and continue taking professional development courses as often as possible!


My husband, Don Fortin, and I celebrated thirty-two years of marriage this summer. We have three children enjoying life in Chicago. Attending sporting events, hiking, reading, and family gatherings are some of our favorite activities.


I am very excited to get to know all of you!
