    Welcome to an exciting year at Ann Reid Early Childhood Center. 

    I am very eager to work with such an incredible collection of students, families, staff and communities. I am proud to represent Naperville 203 and work to better the future of our community. I received my degree in early childhood education from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. My student teacher experiences allowed me to work with children from infants to grade three. From there I was hired to be an early childhood teacher in Joliet, IL. There I learned to love different cultures and I yearn to learn more each day. Please feel free to share yours with the Ann Reid Family. 

    I received my master’s degree from Benedictine University, Lisle, IL.   I first used my master’s degree as assistant principal at Wolf’s Crossing Elementary School. Prior to joining the Ann Reid family, I was the principal of Brokaw Early Learning Center in Oswego, IL. There we provided a high quality early learning program that won multiple Gold Circles of Quality. 


    I strive to learn and improve with each school year, and I am excited to continue my passion in early childhood and working with the future of the district. Ann Reid’s high academic expectations and intrinsic will to build a partnership with families coincide with my educational creed. Feel free to contact me or Ann Reid’s office to arrange a tour of the building and to hear about the variety of opportunities we offer children and their families. We look forward to meeting you.


    Mr. A.J. McCree

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges on 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
