Hi, there!  So glad you are here. My name is Kathy Lizak and this is my sixth year at Gemini.  This school year I am teaching 8th-grade Resource as well as 8th grade English Language Arts with Mrs. Diliberto. I received my undergraduate degree from Depaul University, Special Education endorsement from Elmhurst College, and my master's in reading from Concordia University. I am excited and grateful to be part of this wonderful and diverse community. I love the opportunities and experiences that come with teaching and enjoy being able to learn and grow alongside my students every day. Besides teaching I enjoy reading, cooking, exploring new places as well as camping, hiking, and the great outdoors. Oh, and donuts! 




    If you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me.  Email is best.
