OGS Kindergarten Teachers
My name is Jenna Poladian and I am thrilled to be a part of the Oak Grove community! I graduated from Lake Forest College in 2015 with a degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. Prior to joining Oak Grove, I taught first grade at Greenwood Elementary School in Waukegan.
I grew up in Lincolnwood, but I am currently living in Lake Forest. I have three sisters and a brother--I absolutely love spending time with my family!
I am very excited to work with your kindergartener this year. We are going to have a lot of fun and learn a lot!

My name is Mary Rigali and I’m looking forward to another year in Kindergarten! I grew up in Oak Lawn, Illinois, and now I live here in Saddle Hill with my husband and 3 children. All of our children graduated from Oak Grove School. I've worked at Oak Grove for many years in a number of different grade levels, but I've been teaching Kindergarten since 2014. I have also taught grades 1 through 5 at schools in Wisconsin and Illinois.

My name is Kelly Sweeney and I am very excited to teach another year of Kindergarten at Oak Grove School! I graduated Illinois State University in 2011 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and an endorsement in Special Education. I began teaching Kindergarten at Oak Grove School in 2012.
I grew up in Park Ridge, IL as well as Atlanta, GA for 8 years with my brothers, Jake and Brendan. My mom and brothers currently live in Park Ridge. My dad and stepmom live in Denver, CO with my half-sister, Sam. I currently live in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, and though my commute is long, being at Oak Grove every day makes it worth all the while!

Mrs. Becky Honaker
My name is Becky Honaker and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten here at Oak Grove! I graduated from Knox College with a BA in Elementary Education as well as an art endorsement. I taught Kindergarten for 9 years in Lake Forest while earning my MA of Education in Curriculum and Instruction at National Louis University. I took some time off to be a stay-at-home mom while also earning my Gifted Education Certificate and subbing for three years in Antioch. I also got a chance to long-term sub in art K-6.
I live in Antioch with my husband, and our three kids. We love spending time together as a family, whether fishing, playing baseball, or skiing. I also love to knit and crochet and do any art/craft projects!
