My name is Mrs. Carol Foulk.   I graduated from Western Illinois University in 1985 with a degree in Elementary Education.  I then taught second grade in Rockford, Illinois for 4 years before getting married in 1990 and moving to Peoria where I taught fourth grade for 1 year.  I took a 5 year hiatus to stay at home with my young children while pursuing additional certification in Early Childhood Educaton at Illinois State University.  When both of my children were in preschool, I taught at Redeemer Lutheran Preschool for 5 years until my youngest entered Kindergarten.  At that time I was ready to go back to work full time.  My first year in District 150 was in 2001 at Glen Oak School as a Reading Tutorial Specialist.  I was there as part of the Reading Excellence Act Grant, which lasted 2 years.  I was placed at Franklin-Edison for 1 year as a Language Arts teacher.  In 2004 I came to Kellar as a second grade teacher and received my Master's Degree from St. Xavier University in 2007. 
    I have been married for 29 years with a daughter, Julie, who is a nurse at OSF St. Francis.  I have a son, Ryan, who is pursuing a career in screenwriting.
