Mrs. Julie McElligott

 Hello and Welcome First Grade Parents and Friends!  My name is Mrs. Julie McElligott.  This is my fifteenth year at North Palos School District 117.  This district has been my only home away from home since beginning my teaching career.  I taught Kindergarten for ten years at Dorn Elementary, and have been a Reading Specialist at Sorrick for the last four years.  However, this year I am excited to be filling in another section of first grade due to reopening guidelines of the pandemic. I assure that your child is in the right place for learning:) 

    I am a mom of three children. Conor is 9, Maeve 5, and Molly 3.  I understand that this can be a stressful time as a parent.  I want to assure you that we will be working together, and taking it one day at a time to provide the best experience for your child this year. 

My favorite things to do when I am not teaching is running, baking, shopping, and hanging out with my family and friends, of course while social distancing for now ;).
