Hello,

My name is Kathy Hagnauer, and I am seeking
election as a Board Member for the Granite City
School District.

I wish to become an advocate for the elementary
sector of our district.  I want to make sure that all
aspects pertaining to elementary education are
followed.  These would include curriculum,
finances, IL school code, elementary special
education and NCLB.  Given the budget crisis in our state, I feel that board
members, administrators and all union members need to work together through
difficult times to ensure that our district maintains our current programs while
keeping our employees working.

QUALIFICATIONS:
B.S. Elementary Educations - 11 years teaching regular classroom
Special Education Certification - 7 years teaching special education
M.A. Education Administration - 6 years as principal at Wilson School and
9 years principal at Niedringhaus School

Besides Granite City School District, I have also taught for Special School
District and Riverview Gardens.

I am a life-long resident of Granite City.  Currently I am a board member of the
Granite City Association for the Protection of Animals (APA), a Hospice
volunteer through Gateway Regional Medical Center and a member of Holy
Family Church.

I would appreciate your support and vote on Tuesday, April 9th.

Thank you,
Kathy
