Dr. Tammie Harmon


I am proud to serve as principal of The Wheatlands Elementary School. This year marks the 18th school year that I have served School District 308. I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Southern Illinois University, in Carbondale, Ill., in 1998. I began my teaching career as a student teacher in third grade in New Lenox. For the remainder of the 1998-1999 school year, I was a teacher’s assistant with special education students in fourth and fifth grades, also in New Lenox. I then helped open a brand new building in New Lenox as a fourth grade teacher and remained teaching there for six years. During that time, I received my master’s degree in administration from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, in 2001. I received my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from Aurora University.

I have served School District 308 as a Churchill Mustang since 2005 when I became the assistant principal, then principal in 2011.  I was also the assistant principal at Homestead Elementary School from 2005-2008.   I joined The Wheatlands team as principal in 2018.  I am honored to continue to build on the strong foundation at The Wheatlands and look forward to continuing to serve the School District 308 community in this capacity.
