Nora Geraghty will step over from Northern Suburban Special Education District to become District 28’s Assistant Director of ELS/Student Services, effective July 1.

Ms. Geraghty is a familiar face in District 28, as she has worked since 2007 with the Northern Suburban Special Education District and has been overseeing the Educational Life Skills program in District 28 since 2013.

Ms. Geraghty’s new role in District 28 will allow the District to launch an in-house program for the 2018-19 school year that will enhance services for our students and support a variety of student needs within the ELS Program.

The District enjoys a strong partnership with NSSED and continues to share the goal of ensuring special needs students receive access to the highest quality services within their home school and within the least restrictive environment.

In planning for the District ELS program, Ms. Geraghty will observe ELS classrooms within NSSED and other area ELS programs. She will also meet with parents and identify best practices for a successful program for the District’s special needs students.

While at NSSED, Ms. Geraghty was an intervention specialist and program supervisor. She received a Specialist in Education advanced degree from Michigan State University, and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from University of Illinois at Champaign.
