The Schaumburg Township Elementary District 54 school board has appointed Brian Kaszewicz as the new principal at Hale Elementary in Schaumburg, the district announced Monday.

Kaszewicz has been an assistant principal in District 54 for four years at Aldrin Elementary School, and Frost and Keller junior high schools. Before that he was a social studies teacher at Eisenhower Junior High School.

"I look forward to serving the Hale community," Kaszewicz said in a news release.

She has taught language arts at Eisenhower Junior High School and fourth through eighth grade at Lincoln Prairie School.

"In the past 13 years that I've been an educator in District 54, I feel that I've been the one receiving an education," she said. "I've considered all the administrators that I've worked with to be mentors."

Sosin has a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in education (specialization in reading) from Northern Illinois University. She also has a master's degree in educational leadership from Concordia University.

Cory Burke will become the assistant principal of Keller Junior High School in Schaumburg. She currently is a language arts teacher and the language arts department chair at Mead Junior High School.
