Fund Principal Named Illinois Principal of the Year


Congratulations to Michelle Willis, Principal of Gillespie Elementary School, who was named Elementary Principal of the Year by the Illinois Principals Association!

We’ve been honored to work with Michelle in several programs over the years. Michelle led two teams through our Summer Design Program (in 2013 and 2014), served on our Educator Advisory Committee in the 2015-16 school year, is a former Chicago Principal Fellow, and is a current Cahn Fellow.

We also spent a “day in the life” with Michelle, which is featured on our blog, and highlighted the innovative work¬†she’s leading at Gillespie.

Congratulations again, Michelle. Thank you for representing Chicago’s principals!
