Twin Grove School Assistant Principal Amy Gluck is expected to be approved tonight as the newest principal of Ivy Hall School, Kildeer-Countryside Elementary District 96 announced today.

Gluck, who will begin her new job Aug. 1, will replace Principal Jenny Brown, who is moving out of state to rejoin her husband, who work necessitated their relocation.

Amy Gluck is a District 96 and Stevenson High School graduate. She has a bachelor's degree in Education from Indiana University and a master's degree with a language and literacy concentration from National Louis University.

She worked in Mundelein at Fremont and Carl Sandburg Middle Schools before coming to District 96 in 1997 to teach 3rd grade at Willow Grove Elementary School. Amy continued as a classroom teacher at Ivy Hall Elementary, teaching third and fourth graders. In 2007 she became a reading specialist at Ivy Hall and then Country Meadows schools. In 2011, she accepted the position of assistant principal at Twin Groves Middle School and supports Principal Heather Friziellie in meeting students' needs.

Board members and administrators are confident that Ivy Hall students will benefit from Amy's expertise in making data-driven decisions to shape instruction and differentiate curriculum, a District 96 news release said. In addition, her experience in mentoring and supporting teachers in reading and literacy make her a valuable resource for faculty members' professional development.
