WORTH, Ill. – As part of the Illinois Principal Association’s “Principal for a Day” program, state Rep. Mary Gill, D-Chicago, recently spent time with students, faculty and staff at Worth Elementary to hear and see firsthand their day-to-day activities.
“This was a great opportunity to visit Worth during a school day and talk with teachers about their thoughts on our education system,” Gill said. “I also enjoyed interacting with students and explaining my role as a representative for the community. There’s a lot of bright futures here, and I’m thankful for the dedication and passion from our educators who step up every day for our area’s children.”
Previously a teacher for special education students, Gill has made education a personal focus while serving in the General Assembly. This year she supported a $350 million increase for Illinois classrooms as part of the state budget.
The “Principal for a Day” program aims to further relationships between legislators and the schools they represent. For more information, please visit https://ilprincipals.org/principal-for-a-day/ or contact RepMaryGill@gmail.com.
