Mrs. Kathleen Bale
This is my tenth year as a Special Education Teacher at Finley Jr. High. I taught Special Education at Wauconda Middle School for 5 years prior to teaching at Finley.
I am the 8th grade Special Education Co-Teacher for Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies. I work collaboratively with Mr. Lynch and Mrs. Burcheri in their classrooms with students who are in the regular education program and special education program.
In addition to 8th grade, I am the 6th and 7th grade Special Education Co-teacher for Social Studies and work collaboratively with Mr. Krason and Mr. Peil in their classrooms with students who receive special education services.
I attended Northern Illinois University and received my Special Education Undergraduate Degree and attended Concordia University to earn my Masters Degree in Reading. I have been married for 10 years and I have an 8 year old son.
I work with great people and love my job!!!! :)
