Principal's Welcome
 
Dear Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Heartland Elementary School. I'm excited to be at Heartland as the principal. This is my 21st year in education and my second year in District 304. I have spent the previous 19 years as a teacher, assistant principal and principal in the Crystal Lake School District.

Heartland is striving to support the District's vision and students in 21st century learning. We are currently focusing on reading instruction and balanced literacy, ensuring growth for all learners. We are committed to working as a professional learning community in order to focus on learning, create a collaborative culture and get the results for which we strive.

We hold students' social and emotional well-being in high regard; we continue to implement the Second Step curriculum in all classrooms in order to help students succeed in the classroom and in life.

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to working with our community on behalf of the Heartland students. Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at 630-463-3200 or by email at khornberg@geneva304.org.

Warmly,
Kimberly Hornberg
Principal
