Congratulations to Eileen Kelly-Gorman who was unanimously appointed as the Elwood Union Free School District’s new executive director of special education and pupil personnel services, effective July 1.
Mrs. Kelly-Gorman is excited to get back to her roots. She began her Elwood career at John H. Glenn High School in 2003 as a special education teacher and for the past seven years, has served as director of math, science and technology.
“Special Education is really where my career started and it’s always been something that is very close to my heart,” she said. “It’s always been my passion and I’m very excited to collaborate with my colleagues and push the program forward.”
Over the next three months, Mrs. Kelly-Gorman will work alongside her predecessor, Dianne Wilkinson, to ensure a smooth transition in leadership. Congratulations to Mrs. Wilkinson who is preparing to celebrate her retirement at the end of the school year.
Superintendent of School Dr. Kenneth Bossert offered his congratulations to Mrs. Kelly-Gorman at the board of education meeting on April 2. “I am certain that the students, faculty and staff of Elwood will reap the benefits of her leadership, caring nature and tireless work ethic for many years to come.”
