A former assistant superintendent of Valley View School District 365U has been named the 2013 Illinois Superintendent of the Year by the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA).
Dr. Jane Beyer Westerhold is currently the superintendent of Community Consolidated School District 62 in Des Plaines. She served as an assistant superintendent in Valley View for four years.
The award was presented Sunday (Nov. 18) during the Joint Annual Conference in Chicago co-sponsored by the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO) and the IASA.
“I am extremely honored and humbled to be recognized by my peers, and although I am extremely proud of District 62’s accomplishments over the past eight years, I certainly cannot take the credit in isolation,” Westerhold said.
“I share this award with a Board of Education committed to children, an amazing group of fellow administrators, our teachers and support staff, our parents, our partners, our volunteers, and the boys and girls who are served by us. All of the arrows have to be pointing in the same direction. Our motto is “Working Together for our Children” and this is a true testament.”
