Bachelor of Arts: Elementary Education and Theater
Hello! My name is Mrs. Lord-Carmody, but I go by Mrs. Lord at school. I was born and raised in Zion, Illinois. I graduated in 2010 from Lake Forest College with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Elementary Education and Theater. I completed my student teaching under Julie Smith at O'Plaine school in 2010. After student teaching, I joined the United States Naval Reserve and spent six years traveling to England, Korea, California, and Virginia. I met my husband while in the Navy, and we decided to move back to Illinois so that I could get back into the classroom. I couldn't imagine working with any other district beside Gurnee D56 and am thrilled to start my third year at Prairie Trail School! In my personal time I love to read and enjoy making pre-recorded read alouds for my students. I also love to travel and explore the outdoors and camp with my husband and our dog Bowie. I am looking forward to having another wonderful school year at Prairie Trail!
