Hi! I'm Mrs. Strickler, and I have been teaching here at Big Hollow for 12 years. I live in nearby Lake Zurich with my husband and our sons- Dawson and Oscar (Ozzy). I earned my master's degree in educational technology and feel that integrating technology into the classroom is very important to prepare students for their futures. I absolutely love reading, science, and nature, and hope to inspire my students to find joy in those things as well. I have backpacked over 200 miles on the Appalachian Trail and have the goal of someday finishing the whole 2,000 some miles. I look forward to an exciting year learning and laughing with your children as we get them ready to transition into the middle school. Please email, call, or Class Dojo message me with anything you need. My phone extension is 4100.
