A message from our Principal

I am so thankful to be the newest member of the Middle School 226 community!

I have worked in District 27 for the past fourteen years as an educator, literacy coach, staff developer, and assistant principal. Throughout these years, my focus has been on working with all members of the school community to create the best possible learning environment for ALL students, focusing on helping them to develop the 21st century skills they will need to be successful throughout their lives. I am looking forward to working with such an incredible and dedicated team, as well as our amazing students and parents, to continue this work.

As I write this, I recognize that we are certainly in new territory as we implement remote instruction. Please know that all staff members are here to support you! You can continue to reach out to your child’s teacher through PupilPath. If you are unable to access PupilPath or have any question about remote learning, please send us an email through our new help desk. The email address is We will make sure that your question or concern reaches the right person.

Please take care and stay safe.
