My name is Ms. Dobrich, and this is my first year teaching at Nelson Ridge. I have lived in Mokena for most of my life. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I completed a post-baccalaureate elementary licensure program through the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in 2015, receiving my teaching certification. I am still enrolled at UAF and expect to receive my Master's degree in Elementary Education during the 2017-2018 school year. I absolutely love teaching and helping my students reach their fullest potential.
Favorite Thing About Teaching:
I love learning about each of my students and helping them achieve challenging goals.
