Welcome to Anne Sullivan Elementary School, a fourth and fifth grade level center in Prospect Heights School District 23. There are approximately 350 students who attend Sullivan from the surrounding suburbs of Prospect Heights, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect, and Wheeling. The staff at Anne Sullivan School works to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of each child. Our dedicated staff members are committed to working in partnership with our supportive parent community to meet the needs of our students.
I am excited to begin my fifth year at Anne Sullivan School! An Arlington Heights native, I attended Loyola University Chicago, where I earned my BA in English in 1996. I then earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching from National Louis University in 2001, my National Board Certification in 2007, and my Masters of Arts in Administration and Supervision from Concordia University in 2010. I worked in the Chicago Public Schools from 2001-2005 as a 5th grade classroom teacher, 6th grade social studies teacher, and a reading support teacher before joining District 39 in Wilmette in 2005. During my ten years in Wilmette, I spent six years as a 4th Grade Teacher and Differentiation Support Teacher at Central Elementary School before moving into the role of 5th Grade Level Administrator at Highcrest Middle School.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and trying to keep up with my own children, ages 14 and 16! My favorite pastimes include traveling, enjoying outdoor activities, attending Bears games, Blackhawks games and concerts, as well as reading and cooking.
I look forward to working collaboratively with the staff, students and parents during the 2019-20 school year to ensure our students have successful and rewarding 4th and 5th grade experiences at Sullivan.
