Hello I'm Alejandra Ozuna and I am the first grade TBE teacher. This is my fourth year of teaching. Prior to coming to Paul Revere Primary I was a second grade dual language teacher at Lincoln School for three years.

Art Teacher

Tony Hill

Hello! As a 2nd year teacher, I am excited to teach art at Paul Revere Primary!
Previously, I have taught art for the School City of Hammond & Lake Ridge Schools in Gary, IN. For over 10 years, I have worked in Information Technology. Feeling the need to give back to the community, I pursued my true passion: teaching. As far back as I could remember I have always wanted to teach. I went back to school and became a license teacher in the State of Indiana and now I am transferring to Illinois. Aside from teaching, my other passion is music. I believe art is in everything we do. From music to physical education and content areas; art is all around us. Sometimes we find art, sometimes art finds us

Reading Recovery DLL

Coco Duval

Resource Teacher


I am a 7 year teacher but this is my fourth teaching special education. I spent the past three years teaching preschool special education in Merrillville, IN with a cooperation. Accepting the LDR position at PRP is one of the best things I have ever done. Not only am I closer to home, it also gives me the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of people. All of the teachers and staff here at PRP have been welcoming and supportive. I am very excited to be a part of the team.
