Thank you for visiting the Fox Chase Elementary School website! Our mission at Fox Chase is to provide meaningful learning experiences for every student. Please visit our website often; it is a wonderful source of information about our fine school. We invite you to call or visit Fox Chase with questions and comments.
I have been the principal of Fox Chase Elementary School since 2006. I had previously served as the assistant principal at East View Elementary School here in Oswego. I began my career in education as a teacher of students with learning disabilities, with most of that career also in the Oswego Schools, at Thompson Junior High School, Long Beach and East View Elementary Schools. I received my bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University and master’s degree from Northern Illinois University in learning disabilities. I later received my master’s degree in educational administration from Northern Illinois University. My husband and I live in rural Kane County, and we have two grown daughters, Carolyn and Julia.
It is my great pleasure to partner with the Fox Chase staff in serving the students and families of this community. Our mission statement guides us in our efforts: Learn! Achieve! Succeed! Developing knowledge and shaping character in a learning community.
Hello and welcome to the Fox Chase Elementary School website! My name is Keith Griffin and I am the Assistant Principal at Fox Chase.
I began my teaching career twelve years ago at Old Post Elementary School in Oswego. During those years I taught third and fourth graders as a classroom teacher. I was also the part time Assistant Principal at Old Post for two years, and helped open Grande Park Elementary in the same position.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Eastern Illinois University, and my Masters Degree in Educational Administration from Northern Illinois University.
I feel very fortunate to live and work in the Oswego School district. We have wonderful staff members and supportive parents who care greatly for our students!
