Mrs. Michele Honecker-Ummel
I grew up in Rockford, Illinois, and attended Boylan Catholic High School. Upon graduating, I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I received my Bachelor's in English. Soon after, I attended Illinois State University, where I received my Master's in English and then accepted my first teaching job at LP High School.
At -P I have taught a wide variety of classes, from English 2 to Creative Writing, but currently I invest my time preparing juniors and seniors for college-level thinking, reading, and writing in the AP English and College Prep English courses. I have also served as the Division Chairperson since 2000 and enjoy working with my colleagues to ensure that we are investing our students with the language skills they need beyond high school in the 21st century world.
