Thank you for visiting this page. My name is Danielle Wegener and this is my fifth year at St. Joseph Catholic School (SJCS). I grew up Libertyville and attended both SJCS and Carmel Catholic High School. After graduating from Carmel, I attended the College of Lake County where I earned my nursing degree in 2002. I started my career at Advocate Condell Medical Center in the maternity unit and worked in Labor and Delivery, Mother/Baby and Well Baby Nursery. I worked there for a few years and then transitioned to a pediatric office and enjoyed the office setting. In 2004, I returned to my position in maternity and became a certified childbirth educator and CPR instructor. I enjoy teaching and continue to do so a few times each month.

 

I got my start in the school setting by working as the summer school nurse for District 70 in 2009, 2010 and 2011. I also subbed in District 70 during the school years.

 

I live in Gurnee with my husband Jason and our two sons, Vincent , Nicholas and our two pugs Isabelle (Izzy) and Mia (Mimi).  I enjoy cooking, reading, shopping, traveling and spending time with my family.

 

Please be sure to periodically check back or subscribe to my page for health updates and information throughout the school year. My door is always open so please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you and I look forward to working with your children this upcoming school year.

 

Kindly,

Danielle Wegener, RN ICCE

Health Advisory: Stop Vaping Now!!

Vaping is a serious problem and it's never to early to share the dangers and facts with your children. The CDC says e-cigarettes should never be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women or adults who do not currently use tobacco products. The American Lung Association warned that "e-cigarettes are not safe" and can cause irreversible lung damage and disease. I have included a link for parents to get the facts and an age appropriate link for teens to learn the dangers of Vaping. Thank you for your time. 
 
Kindly,
