Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Thomas Kleine


I am very excited to be a Village Elementary School Resource Teacher!  I graduated with my degree in Elementary Education from Bradley University in 1997 and started my teaching career the following Fall.  I've had the pleasure of being a classroom teacher for grades second through fifth for many years.  I received my Masters in Teacher Leadership in 2005 from Roosevelt University.  In addition to this, I completed my Learning Behavior Specialist Certification.  In 2007, I started my career with Round Lake as a Resource Teacher.  I spent a majority of my time educating the Kindergarten students at the Early Education Center (now Pleviak).  In 2013, I started as the Reading and Writing Lab Teacher at Village School.  In 2018, I joined the Resource Team.  I enjoy working at Village School with the amazing staff and students!
