Literacy Coaching and Supportive Reading

Mrs. Karen Petelle
Reading Specialist / Literacy Coach 

My name is Mrs. Karen Petelle.  I am a reading specialist and literacy coach in District 13.  I started my teaching career in 1994 and began teaching at DuJardin in 2000.  I have an M.A. in Curriculum Development and Reading from DePaul University and a B.A. in Elementary Education and Music from Concordia University.  
I love working as a reading specialist / literacy coach and getting to know all of the students in the building.  Reading and the science of reading are my passions.   I am also the RtI Facilitator for DuJardin.  In this capacity I monitor student growth and coordinate the team that develops a plan to support struggling students.
I am married and have 2 boys  and 2 dogs that keep me very busy when I am not in school. I love walking and reading.  My greatest joy is working with your children and watching them grow to be life-long learners.
