Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Brouder

I am so excited to start another year in 5th grade at Glacier Ridge!  I graduated from DePaul University in Chicago in 2009 where I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and with a concentration in Spanish. I have a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University. Before landing in 5th grade I spent many years doing long term substitute positions in District 47 and District 158.  I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, 4th grade and Art.

As a child, I grew up in Crystal Lake and attended District 47 schools.  I now live in downtown Arlington Heights. My husband and I got married in 2010. Mr. Brouder is a graphic designer at an ad agency. We have a dog named Olive. I have an older brother who lives in Denver and a younger sister who lives in Madison (go Badgers!).  Besides teaching, I enjoy traveling, cooking, gardening and spending time with my family and friends.

The success of your child is extremely important to me. As a teacher I do not only hold high expectations for my students, but for myself as well. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.  I look forward to hearing from you!

It’s going to be a wonderful year!

Mrs. Brouder
