Mrs. Melissa McCormack

This is my 2nd year having the privilege to work as a Special Education Aide for the district.  I enjoy working with all of my students and watching them grow!  In addition to my role as a Special Education Aide, I also serve on the district's PTO as the parent Vice President for Prairie Trail School.  This past June I accepted an Extended School Year paraprofessional position at SEDOL (Special Education District of Lake County), where I supported a summer school class for children with autism.

I have three daughters that attend school in the district:  one at Viking and two at Prairie Trail.   In my spare time I enjoy reading (I am a huge Harry Potter fan!), playing softball, and visiting Six Flags with my family.  I also recently rekindled an old passion by joining the Lakes Area Community Band as a clarinetist.
