Sangamon Valley Publications Club is excited to welcome Mr. Elliott and Miss Jones to our school. Both new staff members will be taking on big roles this year. We were lucky enough to get to chat with both of the new employees to learn more about them.
Mr. Elliott will be taking over the roles of the Dean of Students and Activities Director for our district. One of his job duties entails planning school events, like concerts and sporting events. He also considers himself to be a hall monitor, and he runs eligibility reports. Prior to coming to SVHS, he's worked in Rantoul, Champaign, and Monticello. He also has experience coaching, as he has coached various sports. In our interview, Mr. Elliott said that he has attended Mason Community College Arizona, Parkland, University of Illinois, and Eastern Illinois University. We would also like to congratulate Mr. Elliott, as he and his wife are expecting a baby girl!
Another new face at our school is English teacher and Publications Advisor, Miss Jones. Miss Jones is a recent graduate of Eastern Illinois University, and this is her first teaching position after graduating. In 2014, she graduated from Argenta-Oreana, and she still lives in that area. Miss Jones is also the JV volleyball coach and the head middle school volleyball coach. In our interview, Miss Jones said, “I am excited to be joining the Sangamon Valley High School staff. All of the students are great and I am thankful for the opportunity to teach here.”
Welcome to our district, Mr. Elliott and Miss Jones!
