Gail Hanna - Reading Specialist, South Elgin High School

After 31 years as a U-46 reading specialist, Gail, who’s at South Elgin High School, said she has worked with everyone from kindergarteners to people in the adult education program. “The favorite part of my job has been the opportunity to share in the joy and excitement that my students have felt when they achieved a reading goal, exited the reading intervention program, or earned their GED,” she said. “These very special moments are memories that I will cherish for years to come.” Not surprisingly, Gail likes to read, and she also enjoys cooking and gardening.
