Mrs. Cathy Winckler

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. I am happy to be teaching English learners in District 74 again this year. I am one of the two full-time EL staff members at Rutledge Hall, and enjoy working with 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. This is my 25th year teaching at Lincolnwood and my 29th year teaching overall. The extreme diversity of our district makes us unique, and I feel it is an honor to be responsible for educating the English learners at Rutledge Hall. I love helping students celebrate and share their various cultures, while they build their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English.
