Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Rie Fortin

Greetings!  My name is Ms. Rie Fortin and I teach Senior Capstone, ELA III along with AVID 10.  This is my 11th year teaching at Lincoln West (sixth year with Global Studies) . I love my job, especially when students and I grapple with events happening around the world, think deeply and thoughtfully and develop possible solutions to the issues that concern us.   

Some fun facts about me:  I am an avid hiker and camper, year-round, in all weather conditions.  I practice yoga, read a lot and am a mother of two daughters;  my oldest daughter is a senior at University of Cincinnati and my youngest daughter will begin her freshman year at Loyola University of Chicago.  I speak French, my family and I lived in France for two years.  I like to cook, hang out with my cats and take long walks around the Shaker Lakes.  My life is joyful with so many wonderful colleagues and friends!
