Hello Lancer Families!
I am thrilled to be starting my third year at Palombi Middle School and am excited to have all of our students, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, in our building. This is my 26th year in education, and I have been in administration for 21 years, eight of which were as a dean of a large high school, three were as the Director of Student Services of that same large high school, then I was a Principal of a high school for four years, and a District Director of Language Development for one of the largest high school districts in Illinois for three years. After leading this variety of administrative positions, and getting additional certifications and coursework in ESL, bilingual education, and special education, I knew I wanted to to join a middle school team, so I could work with students and their families, making a larger impact at a younger age.
I look forward to working with all stakeholders and welcome any communications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
