  • About Mrs. Kolze

    Hello!  I am Mrs. Kolze.  I am excited to begin my fourth year at Northwood Junior High School.  I grew up in Park Ridge, Illinois and attended University of Illinois where I majored in special education. Go ILLINI!  I began teaching Math and Science at Northwood in 2014 as a member of the 6th grade team.  In 2016 I graduated from Loyola University Chicago where I earned my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on English Language Learners. 


    This past summer was very exciting for me!  I got married on August 4th in Rockton, Illinois.  It was such a beautiful day!  On my free time, I like to spend time with friends and family, watch the Cubs, and travel.  My husband and I have a travel goal to try to visit all 50 states.  We have seen 13 together so far! 


    I am looking forward to a great school year!  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at dkolze@nssd112.org.
