My name is Kendall Carlson and I am a proud member of the Arts Alive Staff. I have lived in Arlington Heights for 29 years and recall fond memories of participating in the Arts Alive Camp as the child. During the school year, I am a first grade teacher in Mt. Prospect. I love my job and wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. For the past fifteen years, I have spent summers working for the Arlington Heights Park District as a lifeguard, swim instructor, concession cashier, and softball complex manager. I am a proud graduate of the University of Illinois at Champaign –Urbana, enjoy watching sports and spending time with family and friends! I am looking forward to a creative summer at Arts Alive!
