About Mrs. Stirsman:

Teaching is not what I do it's who I am. I have been teaching at MMS for 25 years and it just keeps getting better. My passion is inspiring students to challenge themselves to strive for their personal best. All I ask for is effort and you will do great in my classes. My philosophy is simple; everyone can and will learn in my classes, we have many laughs along the way, but we always get down to business. I hope you are looking forward to a great year. Middle school is a time in your lives that brings many positive opportunities, so take advantage of the activities here at MMS too. Enjoy your sixth-grade year on our team!
 
I have a husband named Scott and we have four beautiful children - Delaney is 17 years old, Ashton is 15, and the twins- Parker and Kameryn are 8 years old.  I play volleyball and love being out in the sun! We have a chocolate lab named "Tracker" and he's 10 years old.

My name is Kelli Kos and I am the Reading Specialist and Read 180 teacher.  I live in Lake Villa with my husband, two sons, and our German Shepherd.  I graduated from Illinois State with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education in 2001 and from Benedictine Univestiy with my Master's in Reading and Literacy in 2015.  I am a self-proclaimed book junkie.  I literally devour whatever books find their way into my hands and I’m a huge fan of young adult novels.  I also enjoy baking, gardening, watching my boys participate in their extracurricular activities, and I love a good joke or funny picture. I’m looking forward to working with your child and having a great school year!
