Ms. Karen Lennes

My name is Ms. Lennes. 

I have been a teacher since 1992, and have been with Lake Villa School District #41 since 2003.  My kids are all graduates of District #41, and we are proud members of the community.

I have three children: Scott, Amanda, and Charlie.  They are all away at college now, so I spend a lot of time with my dog, Lexie. You will often find us walking the neighborhood.  I love seeing so many Thompson families on our evening strolls!

In my free time I enjoy reading, baking, going to movies and plays, and spending time with my family and friends. I love teaching, and cannot think of another job that would bring so much joy to my life!
