About Me

HELLO! My name is Jeanine Tustin and I am honored to be a teacher in the New Lenox School District. I live in the area with my family, which includes my husband and three sons - ages 9, 11, and 13 years. We are often seen in the New Lenox community shopping and participating in sports. 

I am very blessed to have had a number of experiences as an educator. I served as an early childhood special education teacher, an adjuct college professor, a stay-at-home mom, and a preschool teacher prior to joining the Spencer Trail kindergarten staff in 2017. I absolutely love my role as a classroom teacher where I have the pleasure of working with a WHOLE LOT of incredibly energetic kindergarteners!  

I will do my very best to support and encourage our students academically and socially during this critical part of their development so they may reach their full learning potentials!
