Welcome to Churchill Elementary School!
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Myself as well as Assistant Principal Chuck Brewster are very excited to join the Churchill family. We are looking forward to a rewarding and exciting school year at Churchill Elementary School. Whether your family is new to Churchill or your children are returning to us after summer break, we look forward to continuing and developing a strong home-school relationship. Our talented staff and devoted PTA will continue to work together to address your children’s social, emotional, and academic needs.
I currently reside in the Northwest suburbs with my family however I grew up just outside Denver, Colorado. My hobbies include spending time with family and friends, reading, watching lacrosse and shopping. My years of experience in education, along with being a lifelong learner have shaped my thinking and my practice with students, parents and staff. My experiences in education have focused on collaboration in the following areas: social emotional learning, implementation of RtI, special education, as well as language learning and dual language programming. It is my philosophy that all students can and will learn. It is the entire team’s drive to “do whatever it takes” to support and accelerate student learning at Churchill. We make a difference in each and every child’s success. We will uphold the D41 values to continue to promote curious, critical thinkers who are educationally prepared to imagine the endless possibilities.
Our community is dedicated to creating a climate that meets the needs of each child and ensures each student becomes an enthusiastic and successful life-long learner. We all know that positive, strong partnerships between teachers and parents are an essential component for creating highly successful students. Your contributions to your child’s education at home and at school are sincerely valued and greatly appreciated.
My door is always open, so please stop by, introduce yourself and let us know how we can work together to support your student(s) to ensure success for all at Churchill School! We wish everyone a safe return to school, and look forward to sharing a wonderful and memorable school year partnering to achieve success for all.
