Principal's Welcome

Hello, and welcome to McCracken Middle School’s website! Our goal is to provide McCracken families with multiple ways to stay informed and involved in their child’s education. 

As the new principal of McCracken this year, I feel honored and privileged to serve the students, staff and families of District 73.5. I spent four wonderful years here as the Dean of Students and most recently served as the assistant principal at Middleton Elementary School. Prior to my administrative career in the district, I was a teacher in CPS for 13 years spending the majority of that time in fifth grade. 

Here at McCracken Middle School, our focus is providing all of our students with a comprehensive educational program to meet their needs academically, socially and emotionally. Administration and staff work together to assist students in reaching their potential during their time here building skills that will help them excel.
