My name is Gina Dell'Aringa. I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University in 1998 with my Bachelor in Science of Education. I started my first teaching job in first grade at Neil Armstrong Elementary School in District 54. I then transferred to East Maine School District 63 where I taught first grade at Mark Twain School for nine years. During this time, I obtained my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University. I also obtained my English Second Language endorsement through Northeastern Illinois University.
Next, I moved into a leadership role as an Instructional Coach for the past fifteen years at Stevenson School, Mark Twain School, and now I am full time at Washington School. This is my 25th year here at East Maine School District 63, and I have been enjoying being an educator in this school district.
