About Me...

 Welcome to the Nelson Campus!Staff Photo

My name is  Kathie Fiorillo and I am excited to begin my first year as the Assistant Principal at Nelson Ridge & Nelson Prairie Schools.  My career in education began and continues in NLSD 122. I grew up in New Lenox & was a proud graduate back when Oakview was the Junior High! I live in Lockport with  my husband, three kids, and our 10 year old Golden Retriever. This will be my 16th year in the district, as I previously taught 5th grade ELA at Nelson Ridge, Spencer Crossing, and Bentley Schools. I am looking forward to supporting the students, staff, and families of the Nelson Schools. I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of all the amazing learning that happens in these two schools.
