Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, I'm Mrs. Strasser!
I graduated from Judson University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and taught 3rd grade for 1 year in my hometown, Springfield, IL. Then, I married my husband and moved to Crystal Lake where I worked at a therapeutic day school for students with autism for 4 years. During that time, I discovered my passion for special education and decided to begin working towards earning my LBS1 endorsement. Shortly after, I made the switch to public school and joined the Indian Prairie family while I completed my LBS1. The following year, I joined the Learning Resource team at IP!
I am thrilled to be a part of such a passionate team! I love finding new ways to help my students succeed and become more independent, and am so excited to learn and grow alongside them this year!
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family, trying new coffee shops, and being outside.
