I join the School District 129 team as principal of Fearn Elementary School with great enthusiasm! I look forward to making a contribution to this excellent school community and sustaining the momentum that Fearn has already established.

I bring over twenty years of building leadership experience to this role, having served in the communities of Wheaton, Yorkville and Oswego. I began my educational career as a fifth-grade teacher.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education, a Master of Education in educational administration, and a Doctorate of Education in curriculum and instruction.

In the coming school year, I look forward to embracing the curiosity, complexity and joy of learning with our students and staff!

Assistant Principal

Mrs. krizman

I am thrilled for the opportunity to continue my professional career as the assistant principal at Fearn Elementary School. The school community is known for its focus on student learning and social-emotional development and I am eager to continue that great work.

For the past two years, I have served as speech pathologist at Smith Elementary School. There, I helped students overcome communication obstacles so that they could better connect with the world around them. I also bring district and building-level administration experience to my new position, having previously served as the district’s curriculum coordinator for student services for five years and assistant principal in both Glen Ellyn School District 41 and Oswego Community Unit School District 308 for a combined five years.

I hold a Bachelor and Master of Science in speech-language pathology, both from Illinois State University. I also hold a Master of Arts in educational administration from Governors State University.

Please feel free to reach out and introduce yourself to me as I look forward to building relationships with students, staff, families, and community members!
