• Hello Spartan Family,

    My name is Betty Panos but everyone calls me Kiki.  My husband Pete and I have been married for 16 years this June and we have two children, Angelina and Alexander. I have been working in Education for 20 years, a teacher for 15 years and a Dean of Students for the past year. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University, a M.A. in Multicategorical Special Education from Governors State University, and a M.A. in IL Principal Preparation from Concordia University Chicago. My certifications are Director of Special Education, Learning Behavior Specialist Pre-K-21, Middle School Mathematics, Middle School Social Science, Middle School Language Arts, Teacher Evaluation 5-Modules, Devereux Safe and Positive Practices, and Intense Peacemaking Circle in Restorative Justice.

    I am excited to be an Assistant Principal at Chicago Heights Middle School and to embark on this groundbreaking journey with you.
