Round Lake High School
When 18-year old Jonas Valentine came out as transgender, he felt isolated at school at first. “They then isolated me into the teachers’ locker room. They said students felt ‘uncomfortable’ with me in the normal locker room and bathroom. At first I felt like it was fair to the students, but now I’m realizing how unfair it is to myself.”
Gina Epps, 39, of 708 Morris Court, Lakemoor, a physical education, health and driver’s education teacher at Round Lake High School is scheduled to appear in Lake County Circuit Court on March 1.
