My name is Dr. Sandra Keim-Bounds. I am truly vested in Lake Villa Community Consolidated District 41 as a whole. My passion is to provide your child with a positively memorable school experience while ensuring they are educationally prepared for their futures.
I have been a part of the Lake Villa Community Consolidated School District 41 since 1998 and have 25 years of experience in public education as a teacher, principal, and district administrator.
I am currently serving as the Deputy Superintendent and will serve as the Superintendent beginning in July of 2023. In the past twenty-five years, I have served as the following within District 41: Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning for two years, Principal at William L. Thompson School for sixteen years, Assistant Principal at William L. Thompson School for three years, General Education Teacher at William L. Thompson School for three years, and Special Education Teacher at B. J. Hooper School for two years. During this time, I was selected as the Illinois Principal Association 'Principal of the Year' for the Lake County, Illinois Region and for the District's Above and Beyond Award for Exemplary Performance and Service.
Furthermore, I received a Doctorate from National Louis University. My doctoral dissertation focused on the impact of data driven decision making both on student achievement and staff collegiality. I hold a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Northeastern Illinois University. Additionally, I hold a Bachelor's Degree with a dual certificate in both General and Special Education from Purdue University.
