Meet Mrs. Sorrentino

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Illinois State University, earned a Master's degree from St. Xavier University, and have an endorsement in gifted education. I continue to take courses to help me grow in the profession I have loved since day one. During my 30+ years of teaching, I have explored junior high math, math remediation, technology coaching, and gifted education. I have been a REACH teacher at Hawthorne School since 2004 and I LOVE it! My husband and I have three young adult children (two are teachers and one is a school social worker) and a 11-year-old Corgi/mutt, Pepper. Being a teacher in the community where I live is an exciting privilege for me. Thank you for letting me help stretch your child's learning experience.
