Mrs. Carpenter

I attended Northern Illinois University receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, with certifications in Elementary and Special Education. I also have received a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National-Louis University. I currently possess State of Illinois certifications in Elementary, Secondary, and four areas of Special Education.

I began working at St. Thomas School in 1993. I spent several years teaching fourth grade, moving to the junior high level in 2003. I currently have a 6th grade homeroom and teach 6th grade English, literature, and religion; 7th grade English and religion; and 8th grade literature.

My husband Neal and I have been married for 42 years and have lived in the Crystal Lake area for 34 years.

We have three children—Anne, Elizabeth, and Patrick—all of whom attended St. Thomas School.
