MAKEOVER: A Tale of Two Teachers
With the new school year upon us, Windy City LIVE wanted to provide two very deserving teachers with a lavish makeover of a lifetime.
Dawn Glenn has been teaching special education and English as a second language for 25 years. She currently teaches at Larkin High School in Elgin and on top of that cares for her husband Frank, who suffered a debilitating stroke in 2002.
Kristin Brown, or "Bertie" as her friends call her, is 35 years old and is a second grade teacher at Harper Elementary School in Wilmette. Over the past year, she has lost about 30 pounds by eating right and working out on a regular basis. Kristin says she longs to find her soul mate and start a family but before doing so needs some help revamping her hair, makeup and clothing.
We enlisted the help of father-daughter duo, Charles and Chloe Ifergan to transform their looks. Check it out!
