Mr. Casey O'Connell

Principal

I am so happy to be the Principal at Homestead Elementary School. This is my 16th year in Community Unit School District 308. For the last six years, I have served as the Assistant Principal for Churchill Elementary School. Prior to becoming a Mustang, I was a teacher at Homestead for eight years and Bednarcik for one. I taught fifth grade for seven years, third grade for one year, and a multi-age (fourth and fifth grade) classroom for one year. I also coached volleyball at Bednarcik Junior High and Oswego East High School. I attended the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, and graduated in 2001 with a degree in elementary education. I also attended Concordia University, Chicago, and received my master’s degree in May of 2009 in educational leadership. I am glad that I am in District 308 because the students are outstanding, the faculty and staff are great to work with, and the community is very supportive.

Assistant Principal

It is an honor to be a part of the Homestead Elementary community. This is my second year as an Assistant Principal and I am thrilled to be in the Oswego School District. My career began in Naperville School District 203 teaching second grade for five years. For the past eight years I have taught fifth grade in the Batavia and St. Charles area. While teaching fifth grade, I also served as the Director of Learning Resources.

My desire to be an educator began at Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois. I then received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University and later, my Administrative degree from Aurora University. Making a positive difference in education and in the lives of every child I meet, is very important to me.

I look forward to an opportunity to learn and grow in this outstanding school community.

Special Ed Coordinator

I am excited to join SD 308!  I will be working with the STARS program at the early childhood and elementary school levels.  I received my bachelor’s degree in special education (LBS1) at Western Illinois University in 2005.  I then went on to earn my master’s degree in educational leadership from Aurora University in 2011.

I began my teaching career in Wheaton-Warrenville school district where I taught special education at the elementary level for five years and at the middle school level for two years.  I have served as the special education coordinator for the district for the past five years. 

I love being a special education coordinator because it provides me the opportunity to work with a variety of staff members and families.  I enjoy being a support and a leader to help ensure we work together to provide an education based on best practices to meet the individual needs students.
