My name is Mrs. VanCleve and I am so excited to be working at Brompton Middle School this year. I have been teaching for nine years and love teaching Middle School. I have taught in Waukegan, IL and for six years in Kenosha Unified. I received my degrees in Education and History from Carthage College. I have taught 6, 7, and 8th grade and all four subjects. My passion is making History and Science come alive to students and create lifelong learners. I love having students find topics, time periods, and sciences that make them ask questions, think critically, and find real life connections.
I have a wonderful husband named David and a beautiful 2.5 year old daughter Ariana. We are very excited to welcome a baby boy to our family in November. For fun I enjoy golf, running, playing with my daughter and our two cats, traveling the world, movies, concerts and reading.
My joy is helping students find their strengths and interests and grow throughout each year. My goal is to prepare all students for high school and beyond!
