D-300 names new principals
CARPENTERSVILLE – The Oak Ridge School principal for the past four years will continue his ascent through the District 300 ranks later this year, when he becomes principal of Lake in the Hills Elementary.
Nathan Jarot will move from Oak Ridge to replace principal Tammy Poole, who will leave Lake in the Hills Elementary this summer to lead Field Elementary in Elmhurst.
Jarot began his District 300 career teaching at Perry Elementary and later Lakewood School from 2001 to 2007, before becoming dean and curriculum advisor at Lakewood in 2008. He then became assistant principal there before heading Oak Ridge in 2010.
Jarot and two others were introduced to the board this week as the district’s newest principal hires.
“Nate is an amazing collaborator,” said Kristin Corriveau, assistant superintendent of elementary schools. “He has wonderful ideas, and we are excited to have him at Lake in the Hills Elementary.”
Stacy Wilkinson, who has spent the past three years as Jacobs High School education services division head, will replace Jarot as Oak Ridge principal. She spent nine years in District 300 teaching special education at Dundee-Crown High School and Oak Ridge.
A newcomer to the district, Bob Chleboun, will become principal at Liberty Elementary in Carpentersville after Amanda Edwards leaves later this summer for a career outside of education.
Chleboun has been principal at Blythe Park Elementary in Riverside for the last 10 years. He previously was an assistant principal at a North Shore District 112 elementary school for three years.
