My name is Laurie Hylen. I am excited to be at Christ Child Academy. I am a recent transplant to the Sheboygan area and love it here. I received my Physical Education degree from Elmhurst College, as well as my masters in Outdoor Education at Northern Illinois University.
For the past 20 years I taught in Addison, Illinois. While in Addison, I taught elementary PE and coached basketball and softball at the middle school and high school levels. My goal is to instill the importance of having an active healthy lifestyle. I want my students to find ways to be active throughout their lives. By teaching them activities where they can succeed, while having fun, I will be able to help them find motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I am active with high school and middle school youth groups in my church. I have led 20 mission trips across the United States. I also work at Camp Y-Kota and coach softball at Sheboygan North High School. In my spare time, I enjoy being outside hiking, biking, kayaking, and exploring with my husband and daughter.
