Staff Changes for Next Year (Revised)
Crossing guard, Mr. Charlie Matthews, will be retiring at the end of this school year after 50 years as a City of Wheaton employee. Mr. Matthews has held a number of positions with the city and has assisted Washington families in crossing President Street for the last nine years. If you have encountered Mr. Matthews (Charlie) during your time at Washington, please join us in wishing him a happy retirement.
Ms. Melissa Koenig worked as an EL teacher this year at Washington and Lowell. Next year, she will be a full-time EL teacher at Lowell. Mrs. Cathy Liebenow taught music this year at Washington, Whittier, and Sandburg. Mrs. Liebenow will be leaving at the end of this school year and teaching music outside of CUSD 200 next year. We wish Ms. Koenig and Mrs. Liebenow all the best!
Ms. Amy Consolazio, 2nd grade teacher, will be returning to Madison Elementary School next year. Ms. Consolazio moved from Madison this year when their enrollment changed; she now has the opportunity to return, and we wish her well!
Thank you to Mrs. Megan Burke for moving into the special education resource position this winter, replacing the late Mrs. Mary Schlick. The position was a one-year only position, so we wish Mrs. Burke all the best.
Mrs. Beth Miller, 2nd grade teacher, will be moving into a full-time special education resource position next school year. This will give Mrs. Miller the opportunity to work with Washington students in all grades and to utilize her LBS1 special education licensure. The special education team welcomes her on board! Mrs. Craig will share information about a teacher to replace Mrs. Miller in 2nd grade later this summer.
