Ms. DeBoni is so proud to be a part of the EQ3 team and community! After working in Chicago Public Schools for four years, she joined Equitas Academy #3 as a founding first grade teacher for the 2016-2017 school year and has been there ever since! Ms. DeBoni loves working with scholars and watching their curiosity grow into a love of learning. Ms. DeBoni graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology from Michigan State University and after tutoring students in Chicago became passionate about the power of a great education. She went back to school to earn a Master of Education in Elementary Education from DePaul University in Chicago and has worked with children ever since.
