Gail Speraneo

I live in Hillsboro with my husband, Richard.  Richard is an engineer for Vistra Corp.  We have one daughter, Breann, who is the city administrator for the City of Litchfield. Breann and her family reside in Litchfield.  I graduated from Hillsboro High School and continued my education at the University of Illinois at Springfield.  I majored in English with an elementary education certificate, along with middle school endorsements in English and social studies.  I have taught first grade, fifth grade and sixth grade language in the Hillsboro School District.  
Outside of school, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my granddaughter.  I also enjoy reading and cooking, including learning new tips and recipes from the cooking shows.  Growing my own herbs and vegetables is a summertime hobby.
