Join Our Team
District 187 is on a mission together. We are a community working as a team and committed to a shared mission, values, and goals.
We’re seeking teachers who are committed to educational equity and know the power of teaching. We want teachers who want to be part of a team that sees every day as another opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people. Systemic improvement and continuous growth among passionate, committed adults are transforming the district and offer a unique and rewarding place to start and build a career.
“This is a great time to join our team because the new leadership has done their homework. The focus on support and using data to improve student learning has ignited all of us and our schools have flourished. Our students deserve the very best and the rewards we get back from them is ten-fold – I don’t think you see that in most places.”
– Mike Grenda, Principal, Neal Math and Science Academy
“We have a supportive staff that works collaboratively to ensure we address the needs of all of our students. We take pride in making sure our students are academically, socially, and emotionally successful. There is the presence of compassion, caring, and commitment that exists throughout our academy.”
– Stacy McNeely, School Social Worker, AJ Katzenmaier Academy
