Dear Brooks Community, 

   My name is Riley Hoerner, and I am beginning my third year as a Reading Specialist and case manager at Brooks Middle School. In my current role, I will be teaching reading intervention classes for all grade levels. I had other experiences in Evanston/Skokie District 65 and Chicago Public Schools as a special education resource teacher, and general education English Language Arts teacher. 

   In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking and baking, and walking my dog through the city. We just moved near a dog park, and he is loving every minute of being able to play with his new friends. 

   Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns at any time. I look forward to being your partner in education this year!
