Dr. Michael AmadeiSuperintendent of schools
Dear District 62 Community,
Fast-forwarding to today I have appreciated the opportunities for growth in this district. What fulfills me is maintaining a culture that is caring, professional, ethical, collaborative and accountable. The significance of my role in education is never lost on me. Every single day I recognize the ability I have to make an incredible difference for the students, families, staff and community that I serve. My wife, Jennifer, is a career teacher and as parents of Naomi and Cooper, we know first-hand the difference a committed, high-quality, professional school district can make for each and every one of our students.
I am proud to be a part of the Des Plaines and Rosemont learning communities, our staff’s dedication and the perseverance of our students. I look forward to all we will accomplish, and I can say with certainty that the future is very bright!
