    Anne M. Jeans Elementary School in CCSD180 has been my home away from home for 32 years. I started my teaching career at Anne M. Jeans in a second grade classroom. As I have moved into different roles throughout the years each one has given me more joy. I hold a master s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National Lewis University and another masters in Administration from Governor s State University. My experiences and opportunities at CCSD 180 have been fulfilling and rewarding. I am lucky to be one of those people that wake up every day and love going to my job. Yes the district has changed throughout the years. However the focus continues to be educating the students and high expectations. The Board and Superintendent support professional development and provide the resources needed to provide academic and social emotional success. I am now principal at Anne M. Jeans and am excited about all of the wonderful programs and opportunities available to our students and our community. Please come by and visit us to see Anne M. Jeans students in action. I am proud of our students and the staff.

    I was a bit nervous about sending my child to this school based on rumors in the community. I toured the school met with teachers and principals and liked what I saw and decided to give it a try. I am glad I did. My daughter loves it and is doing well. The school is really making a turn around and if more people would put there unpleasant views aside and actually use their community school there would be more of a mix of children. I have not seen anything to hold true to the rumors and I am so glad I followed my own instinct and gave the school teachers and staff a chance because they are really great. They run a tight ship and the kids are very well behaved and well mannered. They have great academics and will put your child in the level of classes that they need to be. Classes are tailored to your child's needs based on assessment tests they do many times throughout the year. I only wish more people in the neighborhood would allow their children to attend this school.

    I have 2 children at this school and my kids have always had wonderful teachers. I am amazed at how they can address each child at his or her level and help that child to improve (whether that child needs extra help or extra challenges). The PBIS behavioral system has the kids walking quietly in lines down the hallways and motivated to behave. There is a wonderful library computer classes a gifted program opportunities to participate in choir and drum corps in 4th grade chess club and a musical is presented by the 3rd and 4th graders. The principal and teachers are truly dedicated caring and excellent at what they do.

    I have a child that is in the Kindergarten class at AMJES. Due to my child being born premature (several months) he is now showing signs of developemental delay. The teachers there are great! They have really taken time to work with him and keep me informed on how he is doing. He is improving everyday. I thank them for their caring and hard work. C. Harris Willowbrook Il

    This school was a good until last year when it started to go downhill. The teachers try really hard to teach good behavior but the lack of parental supervision and involvment has made their jobs impossible. I am pulling my children and moving to a better disrict.
