Mrs. Bottorff's Reading Page


Hello! My name is Rose Bottorff. I am the Reading Specialist at Garfield School. My role is to provide reading support to students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. I love my job because it allows me to watch students grow as readers over those three years - it is truly amazing to watch this happen! This will be my sixteenth year in this position. Before coming to Garfield, I taught 3rd grade at Grant-White for five years.

I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Western Illinois University. I earned my Master's Degree in Reading from Northeastern Illinois University. I have also earned endorsements in ESL and Special Education from the University of St. Francis.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions -
