Degrees and Certifications:

Gail Speraneo

I live in Hillsboro with my husband, Richard.  Richard is an engineer at the Kincaid Power Station.  We have one daughter, Breann, who is a city director for the City of Highland, Illinois. Breann and her family live in Highland. 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.  
My hobbies are reading, biking, and cooking.  I especially enjoy reading fiction/nonfiction novels and biographies as well as riding on bike trails.  Trying new recipes is fun, and I like to learn recipes and tips from the cooking shows.  I enjoy growing my own herbs and cooking homemade recipes.
