SHS has a new AG teacher, Ms. Jessica Bochniak! She is a Seneca High School and ISU grad and lives in rural Marseilles. Jessica loves animals so of course, her favorite sports teams include the Bears, the Cubs, and the Bulls. Maybe that love for animals is why she owned National Award winning pet care business from the age of 13 to 21! If she wasn't a teacher she would like to be a state trooper, K-9 unit! Glad to have you as a Bobcat!
Leslie Bergeson joins the JRW team as a first-grade teacher. She graduated from Morris High School and the University of Illinois as well as IUPUI. Ms. Bergeson has been to 49 states and her favorite destination is Banff National Park, Alberta Canada. If she wasn't in education, she would love to work in an orphanage in Africa. In her free time, she enjoys exercising and watching the Chicago Blackhawks. Welcome Leslie!
Chris Gomes joins SMS as the 7th & 8th-grade science teacher. He is a graduate of Plano High School, Waubonsee Community College and NIU. If he is not working on or driving his 1967 GTO, Mr. Gomes will be found biking for miles, as he is an avid cyclist. He may even bike to California, his favorite destination. He is excited to work with students to encourage their growth as life long learners. Great to have you, Chris!
