Gurnee School District 56 Teacher of the Year
Thoughts from Dr. Pacatte
Lisa McLeRoy joined Gurnee School District 56 and Spaulding School as an elementary classroom teacher in 1986 and has been a member of the D56 family ever since. Over the years she has taught in the regular classroom and is finishing her career as a reading specialist. As many teachers do, Mrs. McLeRoy has worked behind the scenes on committees and helping with special projects to keep Spaulding and the District moving forward. She is a teacher leader and tirelessly seeks ways to help our youngest learners blossom into readers. She has unofficially mentored younger teachers boosting their confidence and supporting them in their development of classroom management and teaching strategies. Mrs. McLeRoy led the development of our Reading Rounds, which is a Spaulding professional development program. Lisa worked with teachers and demonstrated reading comprehension strategies to move students towards higher thinking levels. This program helps all of the staff to remain current on the newest research related to teaching young children to read. Through her direct instruction with students and support of her colleagues she has impacted the lives of thousands of Spaulding School readers.
Mrs. McLeRoy's teaching skills are second to none and she is also one of the most creative teachers in D56. She is always willing to help out where there is a need, making her an excellent team member. Lisa McLeRoy is a model of excellence for everyone, staff and students.
Mrs. Lisa McLeRoy is being recognized by the Henderson Family Foundation Gurnee School District 56's Teacher of the Year at the May 2 Gurnee Village Meeting of the Board of Trustees. Congratulations, Lisa!
