Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Aaron Dudley
I began my undergraduate work at Eureka Collage, in Eureka, Ill. After spending two years at Eureka I transferred to Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, to finish my degree in elementary education. I began my teaching career at Stevens Middle School in Wilmington, Ill., where I taught sixth grade special education language arts. Looking to get into the elementary classroom I accepted a position as a third grade teacher at Woodview Elementary School in Bolingbrook, Ill., where I taught for four years. During that time I pursued my master’s degree in educational leadership from Concordia University, Chicago. Looking to have more of an impact on the school setting I moved into a leadership role in District 308 as the assistant principal of Lakewood Creek Elementary School. During my four years at Lakewood Creek, I had the opportunity to work with many wonderful teachers, students, and families. However, as the years passed, my passion for working directly with students began to grow and wasn’t being satisfied working in an administrative role. I decided I needed to be back in the classroom to fulfill that need. Since returning to the classroom, I have taught a variety of classes at the Junior High School level, including geography, world history, sixth grade language arts and physical education.
