Welcome! My name is Pina Romeo and I am the Math Interventionist at Walsh School. I have 26 years of teaching experience and am very excited to begin my 21st year in District 92. I consider this district my family. My husband Tony and I have lived in the communities for 31 years and my children have all graduated from District 92.
Education has always been very important to me. I must have instilled those same beliefs in my children. My oldest son, Anthony is a chemistry and physics teacher at Metea High School in District 204. My middle son, Michael is a Teaching and Learning coach at Bolingbrook High School. My daughter-in-law is a BCBA at Guiding Light Academy. My daughter Lia, is a speech pathologist at Walsh School.
I started my career path many years ago with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood from St. Xavier University. In 2008 I graduated from Lewis University with a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Teacher Leadership. In 2013 I received an endorsement from Lewis University as a Learning Behavioral Specialist.
My teaching experiences have been varied. I have taught 4th grade for 15 years, ten of them at District 92. I then moved to Reed school where I taught 2nd grade for 3 years. Finally in 2011 I became a Math Interventionist. I am so excited to be working in this role. I have the opportunity work with students and teachers sharing strategies and lessons to promote fluency and understanding of math concepts.
I am dedicated to making this my best year yet! I cannot wait to continue to learn and grow with your children as we embark on the challenges and great changes that are now occurring in education today.
