Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Mandy Kernagis and this is my eighth year teaching in District 105, and my third year in sixth grade. I taught first grade for my first five year at Seventh Avenue. I am very excited to again be teaching some of my friends from first grade! I graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Speech Communications. I worked in the business world for a while, and then went back to school and received my Master of Education from DePaul University. From there, I taught eight and a half years in the Chicago Public Schools, where I taught mostly fifth grade. I live in Countryside with my husband and three kids. My son is a Senior at Lyons Township, and my twin girls are sophomores at LT. I am thrilled to be working with sixth graders!
