New Administrators Hired in Flossmoor School District 161

Among the administrators hired at the end of the 2018-2019 school year were new principals for Western Avenue Elementary School and Serena Hills Elementary School and two assistant principals at Parker Junior High School, in addition to a few changes at the District Office.

Gina Isabelli will join District 161 as Principal of Western Avenue School after serving four years as the principal of Circle Center Grade School in Yorkville, Illinois.

“Filling the principal vacancies at Western Avenue and Serena Hills with high caliber administrators was the highest priority for the District 161 school board coming to the end of the school year,” said Dr. Dana Smith, Superintendent. “After several rounds of interviews with a number of highly qualified candidates, Gina Isabelli and Beth Reich clearly rose to the top of the group.”

Isabelli started her teaching career as a third and then sixth grade teacher in the Troy School District 30C. While teaching, Isabelli also earned her Masters of Arts in Education with a focus on School Improvement Leadership from Olivet Nazarene University. She also held the position of Assistant Principal at three elementary schools in the Yorkville CUSD 115.

Please join us in welcoming Ms. Isabelli to Western Avenue and the Flossmoor School District 161 family!
