All about Mrs. Wollner

  • Hello!  Welcome to kindergarten!  I am excited to be starting my 11th year teaching at Hillcrest and 6th year teaching kindergarten!  My first 4 years at Hillcrest I worked as a reading specialist. Prior to joining the Hillcrest staff I taught 1st grade for 4 years.  

    I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa and my Master's degree in Reading and Literacy from Benedictine University.  I love reading!  I can't wait to share books with your children and watch each of them grow as readers and writers this school year.
    I live in Lindenhurst with my husband, Jacob, our daughter, Kailyn, our son, Graham, and our dog, Bentley. Kailyn will be 6 in November and will start kindergarten this year at Millburn Elementary.  Graham is 2 1/2 and is go go go all day long! I love being a mom and the 2 of them keep us very busy.  
    I look forward to working with all of you this school year.  The year will be different for all of us, but I know it will be filled with lots of fun and learning.
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
