Meet Mrs. Anderson

I am beginning my 21th year of teaching and I’m so excited!
I have taught 1st and 3rd grade in San Antonio, Texas, and 2nd and Kindergarten right here at ILS.
I met my husband, Peter, right here at Immanuel and we’ve been married for almost 17 years. We live in Carpentersville and we have 3 children, Lydia is a Junior at Dundee Crown, Ethan (8th) and Adam (6th) attend here at Immanuel.
I love playing the piano, singing, being active and sharing Christ with my students. I am eager and overjoyed to go on this journey with you and your child. My favorite part of teaching Kindergarten is watching the “light bulbs” click as they learn and discover new things!

Meet Mrs. Hollquist

Hi there! I am so excited to work with your kindergartener this year! This year is going to be a year full of fun, learning, & lots of adventure! I have been teaching at Immanuel since 2018. Before having my children, I taught both 2nd and 3rd grade in the public school system. I love teaching kindergarten and sharing Jesus’ love with His little lambs.
I am married to my wonderful husband, Kurt. We have been blessed with three beautiful children, a daughter and two sons, as well as one fur-child, our Maltipoo. Family life keeps us busy these days with their sports and other after school activities. When we have down time, we love to stay home and watch movies and play games together. During breaks from school, we also love to take road trips to explore God’s creation.
If you should need to get in touch with me throughout the year, please call me at school (847) 428-1010 ext. 241 or e-mail me at
