Mrs. Lorie Zeiger

I have been working in District 116 since 2005, and have taught fifth grade for two years, sixth grade for four years, and eighth grade since then.  I have always wanted to teach eighth grade language arts, and feel like "I am home".  I earned my BA from Columbia College, and my Masters of Education from National Louis University.    This is my thirteenth year teaching.  Prior to teaching I worked in sales, and for a brief period I worked in the development department at Providence St. - Mel in Chicago.

I have always wanted to be a teacher; I just took the scenic route to get her.  I am an avid reader and one of my passions is instilling a love to read in my students.
