1st Grade

Miss Lippert  - Teacher

My name is Wendy Lippert and I am the first grade teacher here at Burnham. I began my career here in 2008 and spent five years teaching third grade. I jumped at the chance to move down to first grade and have loved working at this grade level ever since.

I am a graduate of Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Prior to teaching at Burnham School, I worked as a substitute teacher in Mount Prospect and Prospect Heights, Illinois.  I live in Wheeling, where I love spending time with my nieces and nephews.

My ultimate goal as your child’s teacher is to make learning engaging, fun and purposeful. I always tell my class that we don’t have a minute to waste while we are at school. There is always something to do, and more importantly, always something to learn.
