Mrs. Koechle

  • Mrs. Koechle Hello!  My name is Mrs. Koechle (Cake-Lee).  I graduated from Illinois State University in 1999 with a degree in Elementary Education.  I also earned my Master's degree in reading from ISU in 2004.  I have been lucky enough to teach in the Unit 5 school district for the past 17 years.  I have been a 5th, 3rd and 1st grade teacher.  This is my 14th year teaching at Northpoint and my 6th year of teaching 1st grade. I am very proud to be a Northpoint Knight and to have the privilege of working with the amazing staff and the outstanding families that attend our school!  

    My husband and I have been married for 27 years.  Our daughter, Chelsea, graduated from ISU with a degree in Art Education.  This is her third year of teaching art at Evans Junior High School in Unit 5. 

    Teaching first graders brings me so much joy and I am continuously looking for creative and engaging ways to enhance the learning of my students.  I am very excitd to get the opportunity to work with your child this year! It is my goal to create a warm and inviting environment for each of my students.  Together we will laugh, play, and learn every single day!  I believe strongly in the importance of a quality home/school connection so if you have any questions or concerns, you may may contact me via email at  Together we can accomplish ANYTHING!  I look forward to a year filled with exciting new expereinces with your child!
