Ms. Karen Rannie
Hello! My name is Karen Rannie. I grew up in a small town named Waterman, Illinois (south of DeKalb). Since 2nd Grade I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I went to Illinois State University for my Bachelor's Degree. Go Redbirds! I taught in Marengo for two years before coming to the Crystal Lake School District. This is my 17th year teaching Early Childhood in District 47. While I've been teaching, I went back to Northern Illinois to receive my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Special Education and I also took classes to receive an approval to teach English Language Learners. I live in Crystal Lake with my loving husband and two daughters who are 11 and 7 years old.
