My name is Wendy Alcala, and I am the fourth grade reading specialist at Oak Ridge School. I started working at Oak Ridge in 2019. Before becoming a Reading specialist, I taught first and second grade in a multi-age classroom and first grade in nearby suburbs. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Master's degree in Reading from Governors State University.
I have been married to my husband David for 20 years, and we have two wonderful children. In my free time, I enjoy attending my kids sporting and school events. I also enjoy reading, walking and gardening.
As a reader and educator, I hope to instill the love of reading into the students I work with daily.
