Hello ELL and Special Education Students and Families!

    My name is Joan Rundell and this year I have two exciting jobs! I remain an ELL Resource teacher and I am also a Special Education resource teacher at Mark Twain School. 

    This is my 19th year working in the district, my fifth year as an ELL teacher and my first year as an Special Education teacher.  I have had the opportunity to work as a classroom teacher in grades five through one. 

    I have a Masters Degree in Reading, and another in Special Populations. I think that you can safely assume that I love school!

    I live in Wilmette with my family, and some of my favorite activities are cooking, traveling, swimming, and hiking.
