Welcome to 5th Grade 2013-2014


About Mrs. Okner:

My husband and I are residents of Homewood, IL. We have a kitty named Gizmo, who just turned one. I enjoy traveling, reading, and staying active. 

This is my 8th year teaching in New Lenox School District. I started my first year teaching 4th grade and then moved to 5th grade, and have stayed there for 7 years. 

I received my Elementary Education degree from Illinois State University. While I was there I completed my student teaching in Pekin, IL. In 2010, I went back to school and received my Educational Administrative Degree from Governors State University.
