Mrs. Jeanie Besserud

I graduated with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Special Education from Illinois State University and completed my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University.  I've been teaching early childhood special education in District 47 for 14 years.  I'm married with 2 daughters.  My oldest daughter is a paramedic in the Crystal Lake area and my younger daughter is finishing up her rotations as a Physician Assistant. We hope she will practice close to home, but since attending Marquette University in Milwaukee, may choose Wisconsin when she graduates.

In my spare time, I run my Etsy shop where I sell the products of my knitting obsession.  My husband and I enjoy camping and exploring during our free time.
