Beecher School District 200U welcomes Mrs. Nicole Black, as the new principal of Beecher Elementary School, beginning in July, 2016. The district will host a "Meet and Greet", for Mrs. Black and her family, on Wed., May 18, in the BES Library from 5:30-7:30 P.M. Parents and community members are welcome to attend. Please see the attached flyer for more details.
One of our current BHS sophomores, Nicole Kain '18, wrote an article about incoming principal Mrs. Nicole Black:
I had the incredible opportunity to interview the new Beecher Elementary School principal, Mrs. Nicole Black. She is looking forward to meeting all the teachers, staff, students, and parents. She cannot wait to ¨become part of the Beecher family, learn about the district, and how [she] can help to keep the school as successful and well-loved as it is right now.¨
¨I have known I wanted to be in education since I drew my first grade career poster,¨ Mrs. Black said. And her dreams led her to study Elementary Education at ISU and graduate from the University of St. Francis in 2000. That same year she started her teaching career in New Lenox. She then taught at Caroline Bentley School for four years before becoming a stay at home mom for about three years. She started subbing in Manhattan to ¨get [her] feet wet again.” For the 2009-2010 school year, she started teaching in Frankfort. She taught at Chelsea Intermediate School for four years. While working there, Mrs. Black returned to college to earn her master's degree in Administration from Governors State University. In 2013, she became the principal of Braceville Elementary School.
¨I think what I love most about being a principal is being able to help so many people. When I was a teacher, I was able to work with and help the students in my class; but now, I get to work with and help all of the people in a school. I still have the opportunity to talk and connect with students (which I LOVE!), but I am also able to support and encourage teachers. I am able to have more impact on how a school runs and, hopefully on its success as well,¨ Mrs. Black commented.
¨I wanted to come to Beecher because I started in a very small district, and I felt like I wanted to move to a bigger school where I, along with the staff at BES, will be able to make a positive impact on many more students!¨
Beecher can not wait to meet Mrs. Nicole Black in August, and see how she will influence our beloved elementary school throughout the next school years.
