Mrs. Mika

This is my 12th year in Round Lake School District 116 as a Education Life Skills Teahcer. I love watching how the students grow in the 3 years that they are with me.  In our classroom, we focus on preparing our students for future skills in the area of independent living, with an emphasis on vocational, community, and recreation/leisure skills.  We visit the community regularly and sell coffee to staff members. These activities help the students to improve their communication, money management, social interaction, shopping, and job skills. When not involved in one of these activities, the students attend elective classes and work on functional academics within the classroom.

I have been married to my husband John for 16 years and we have a 8 year old, beautiful daughter Remi. I enjoy running and a variety of outdoor activites.
