Mrs. Ann Bochniak

My name is Ann Bochniak and I am the middle school special education teacher at River Ridge. Every student has their own learning strength. I enjoy finding that strength and make it my top priority to help my students achieve their very best. I was born and raised in Chicago. I am a big Chicago Cubs fan. Growing up 1 1/2 miles from Wrigley Field and Lake Michigan makes me appreciate all that comes with living in a small community. I am married with three grown children and three grandchildren. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, warm weather, and reading a good book.
