Mrs. Gainer, Principal
Welcome to Hillside School!
It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the new principal of Hillside School. I am truly honored to become part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past 20 years as a second grade teacher, reading specialist, assistant principal, and principal in the south suburbs of Chicago. In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and the school, by providing the best instructional opportunities possible. I am impressed by the long list of instructional and extracurricular opportunities offered to students at Hillside School and will continue to support their growth.
Most importantly, an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration of students, parents, and staff. I have met many parents over the past month but am eager to connect further at the PTO sponsored back to school picnic on August 23rd at 6:00 pm. I look forward to a great year ahead of us! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, and ideas that you would like to discuss.
