Hello! My name is Jeanie Barrigar. I am excited to be the new first-grade teacher at St. Leonard! You have a wonderful community of which I am honored to be an integral part. I am looking forward to a fantastic year of discovery, growth and challenge in our first-grade classroom. I received my Masters of Teaching in Elementary Education from Concordia University in River Forest. Before teaching, I designed hospitals for a large architectural firm in Chicago where I worked closely with architects, engineers and hospital staff. I designed many mother/baby units where your first graders may have been born. I live in Oak Park with my twin 10 year old daughters and our two year old pup, Bandit.
