My name is Mrs. Verde and I am the Preparing All Students for Success (PASS) teacher at Crete Monee High School. I graduated from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale with a degree in Health Education and also hold a master’s degree in Education Administration from Governor’s State University. I accepted my first teaching job at Crete-Monee High School in 2003. I left CMHS in 2009 for another position but am happy to say that I have returned to my “roots” and am proud to be back in the Crete-Monee school district! I thoroughly enjoy working with students and am dedicated to teaching a curriculum that combines traditional academics with life skills. My educational goal is to provide knowledge and skills that will help all students be productive citizens who make a positive impact on the world.
