Mrs. Morgan Aiello
I joined District 89 in 2007 as a fourth-grade teacher. I have taught fourth and fifth grade, but am now the Challenge teacher at Arbor View.I work with second- through fifth-grade students in the areas of STEM and Language Arts and Humanities (LAH).
I grew up in Indiana and completed my undergraduate work at Ball State University, earning both an honors and elementary education degrees. A few years back, I joined National Louis University to begin my graduate studies, completing a Master's of Education in Math Education, with a focus on elementary math.
I continued adding to my credentials and became a certified elementary gifted specialist. As of December 2018, I am officially a Nationally Board Certified Teacher! Woo hoo!
Personally, I am a diehard Colts and Ohio State fan. My husband and I love to attend concerts and have been taking our kids along for the ride. As a family, we spend much of our time playing at the park, reading books and making puzzles.
I am a reader - any genre, any subject, though fantasy is my favorite. If I could go anywhere it would be Hogwarts. Harry Potter is my main man!
My husband Ryan is a middle school special education teacher in Villa Park, as well as a drummer in his free time.
We have a bratty, cheese-loving dog named Bubba and a sweet, carrot-loving dog named Holly. We welcomed our first child, Hunter, in July of 2017 and our second child, Dean, in May of 2019. Life is great!
