  Andrew Llaneza, Junior High Teacher
My name is Andrew Llaneza and I am privileged to be the junior high science teacher at St. Hubert. Professionally, I have achieved a lot in my ten-year educational career. I have a Master’s degree in secondary social studies education from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011. I ran a social studies department in Michigan that helped students achieve what amounted to top twenty social studies testing growth in the state over a three-year period. I’ve trained student teachers from Wayne State University. I've also graduated from a two-year program for elite teacher leaders in Wayne County.  I am excited to be apart of the great team here and to help your children learn about history and their present world by developing their capacity to become critical thinkers through exploration of the past.
  Heidi Gorr, Junior High Teacher
My name is Heidi Gorr, and I am the Literature teacher for Junior High.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree in English Secondary Education from Illinois State University.  I am certified to teach English in grades 6—12.  I also have a Middle School endorsement, in addition to endorsements in Social Science, Language Arts, and Speech.  In 2015 I earned my Gifted Education Teacher endorsement as well.  I am a Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Society Member, and an Anna Keaton English Scholarship Recipient. I spent the first thirteen years of my teaching career at St. Raymond School in Mt. Prospect as their Junior High Literature teacher, and I loved every minute of it!  While it was extremely difficult to leave, I could not pass up the opportunity to come home to St. Hubert School.  I am a proud graduate of St. Hubert School as well as a parishioner, and my children attend St. Hubert School. My goal as a junior high teacher is to encourage students to think for themselves and not be afraid to break away from the crowd.  My classroom is student centered and fosters open minds and respect for yourself and those around you.






Lori Norman, Junior High Teacher
My name is Lori Norman, and I am the junior high Social Studies teacher. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Smith College in Massachusetts. I have middle school endorsements for Reading, Social Studies and English as a Second Language. In addition, I hold a Master’s degree in Teacher Leadership from Roosevelt University and a Reading Specialist Master’s degree from Loyola University. I have taught middle school school for twelve years, as well as have two years as a writing coach at the high school level. My goal as a teacher is to challenge students to work harder and achieve more than they may think is possible by creating an environment where they feel valued. I became a teacher because I wanted to share my love of reading, writing, and learning with others. By bringing joy and enthusiasm to the classroom, I encourage students to become lifelong learners.

 
Kelly O'Hara, Junior High Teacher
My name is Kelly O'Hara, and I teach Junior High Math. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Math and Economics from Northwestern University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Loyola University. I previously worked in business in the area of computer consulting. I received my teaching licensure from National-Louis University where all of my coursework revolved around iPads and other technologies and how to incorporate these into teaching and learning. I have elementary licensure and middle school endorsements in math and social studies. While at National-Louis, I received the Ida Summins merit scholarship for academic excellence and community service. I continue to serve our community in many capacities including Cub Scout den leader, Boy Scout merit badge counselor, and photographer for a youth theater company. I believe every child can learn and that by using a variety of techniques we can educate every child. I model lifelong learning for children in my classroom and bring real-world examples to the subjects I teach. I look forward to welcoming your child to my classroom.
