A Little About Me

Mr. Lennertz

I cannot believe that I am teaching my 8th year at Heron Heights and 6th year in Multiage. I would never have imagined landing in a teaching career from where I began, but I wouldn't change a thing.

I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and earned a BS degree in Marketing from Illinois State University. After graduating, I took a job with Brunswick Corporation and operated bowling centers for over 14 years, in 3 states.

While living in Connecticut, I began volunteering in my daughter's 1st grade classroom. I fell in love with seeing the kids wonder and learn. After that school year, I made the switch in careers. I went back to school and earned a teaching degree from Sacred Heart University.

I am always looking to grow as a learner and take that knowledge to the classroom. I'm happy to announce that I am working toward my Gifted Endorsement.

I love being in the classroom. I consider your children one of my own. I have high expectations for each of them.
