About Ms. Otte



I am very excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher this year!  This is my 6th year teaching at Hynes Elementary and my 16th year as an educator.  I absolutely love teaching Kindergarten and learning with my students.  I graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education and a specialization in English as a Second Language.  I completed my Master's degree in  Linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University.  I grew up in northeastern Iowa, have lived and worked overseas as a teacher, and I now live here in Morton Grove with my husband and our two daughters.  I love biking, running, reading, being active in the community, exploring Chicago and traveling as much as I can.  To me, helping each child learn and grow in a safe, happy, supportive environment is most important.
