People don't care how much you know...until they know how much you care!
 

  

Mr. Alessia's Bio: I grew up in Calumet City and Lansing, IL. I attended St. Victor Elementary School and Thornton Fractional South High School in Lansing. Following high school, I studied elementary education at the University of Illinois @ Urbana/Champaign. In the fall of 2007, I completed my post graduate degree through Concordia University Chicago in Educational Leadership and Administration. I began my teaching career in 2001 at Jane Addams Elementary School in Palatine, IL, teaching sixth grade. In the fall of 2002, I became a long-term sub for the Enrichment/Project Arrow Program for grades K-3 at Spring Brook. The next year, I moved up to fourth grade, where I spent 13 amazing years. In the fall of 2017, I moved back to the primary grades and began my new journey as a first grade teacher. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my five nephews. I also enjoy trying to golf, playing with my dog, attending White Sox and Illinois football/basketball games, reading and spending as much time as possible outdoors.

 

Mrs. Everix’s second home is her first grade classroom at Spring Brook School. She couldn’t imagine a better age to help guide children with their learning. Mrs. Everix received her Bachelor’s degree from North Central College as well as her Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. One of her favorite parts about being a teacher is visiting with her former students and hearing about the wonderful things they have accomplished. Mrs. Everix loves doing all sorts of activities with her husband Mark and her two sons, Jacob and Matthew. She also enjoys baking, cooking, taking trips to Lambeau Field, and spending time with family and friends.

 

Ms. Forrester's dream of becoming a teacher came true in 2014 and the blessings just continue to flow! She received her Masters of Arts in Education from National Louis University. Ms. Forrester enjoys inspiring young minds, relaxing, and spending time with her daughter and precocious pooch Precious!   

 

Mrs. Mores is very excited to be teaching first grade at Spring Brook! She has also taught kindergarten and second grade. She has a Bachelor’s Degree from Illinois State University and a Master’s Degree from National Louis University. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing the amazing growth the students make throughout the year and the excitement the students show when they’ve just learned something new! Mrs. Mores and her husband Steve have three sons Brian, Scott, and Matthew who are all Iowa alumni (go Hawkeyes!). In her free time, she enjoys traveling with her family, reading, exercising outdoors, and watching sporting events (White Sox and Black Hawks). She hopes to foster a love of reading and writing in her students both in and out of the classroom.
