Early Learning Center
My name is Tammie Harmon and I am proud to serve Churchill Elementary School as the Principal.
I currently live in Plainfield with my husband, Kevin, and my two children. I grew up in Crete with my mom, dad, and older brother, Nick.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University in 1998. I began my teaching career as a student teacher in 3rd grade in New Lenox. For the remainder of that school year, I was a teacher’s assistant with Special Education students in 4th and 5th grades also in New Lenox. I then helped open a brand new building in New Lenox as a 4th grade teacher and remained teaching there for six years. During that time, I received my Masters Degree in Administration from Northern Illinois University in 2001.
I have been a Churchill Mustang since 2005 when I became the Assistant Principal. I am honored to continue to build on the strong foundation full of learning experiences for the children at Churchill in this second year as Principal. I look forward to continuing to serve the Churchill Community in this capacity.
My name is Casey O`Connell and I am happy to be the Assistant Principal at Churchill Elementary School. This is my eleventh year in Oswego 308. Prior to becoming a Mustang, I was a teacher at Homestead for eight years and Bednarcik for one. I taught fifth grade for seven years, third grade for one year, and a fourth/fifth grade multi-age classroom for one year. I also coached volleyball at Bednarcik Junior High and Oswego East High School.
I grew up in Joliet and have family that still live there. There are 17 members of my family that are in education ranging from a Kindergarten teacher to a dean. I attended the University of Iowa and graduated in 2001 with a degree in Elementary Education. I also attended Concordia University and received my degree in May of 2009 in Educational Leadership.
I am glad that I am in Oswego because the students are outstanding, the faculty and staff are great to work with and the community is very supportive.
