Meet Mrs. Kraemer
Hello District 175 Families!
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. I am so excited and truly honored to be the Assistant Principal at Ellis Elementary and Harmony Intermediate School. I look forward to continuing my work with Mr. Deets, as well as the rest of our staff, in our efforts to do whatever it takes to advance the achievement of all student in our district. Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly challenging and enriching school experience.
I graduated from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Master of Science in Education Administration. I also hold my Special Education Endorsement, Learning Behavior Specialist 1, which was obtained from Greenville College. I spent eight years as a special education classroom teacher, before moving into administration last year.
Deciding to become an administrator came from a strong desire to make a positive impact on an entire school community. I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child. Parents, teachers, support staff, community and administration all play a part in help our students meet and exceed our expectations of them.
The elementary school years are important and critical times for students. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is safe and respectable, in order for your child to receive the best possible academic instruction. I am confident that our schools will continue to be a place where our students can learn and grow academically and socially.
Feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open! If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.
Mrs. Terri Kraemer
