Hello everyone! My name is Lynn Brecka. I am the 2nd Grade teacher at Alma Area Schools. I am beginning my 26th year teaching here in Alma. I grew up in Salem, Illinois in the heart of Southern Illinois. I received my Associate of Arts Degree from Kaskaskia College in 1991 and my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Millikin University in 1993. I've spent most of my career teaching either 2nd or 3rd grade. I absolutely love teaching and seeing the excitement of learning in my students.
I have lived in Alma for 26 years with my husband Brian, who works as a Fisheries Biologist with the DNR. We have four children. Our oldest, Brilyn, is a sophomore at the Univeristy of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. We have twins, Emma and Ethan who are now seniors at Alma. Colton, our youngest, is a sophomore in Alma as well.
I'm love being a "sports mom". My spare time is spent cheering on the Eagles and the UWSP-Pointer Throws teams. I'm also an avid STL Cardinals baseball fan.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year! I truly believe in working together we can make this year the best one ever for your child!
