Operating as usual
Over the past 12 years, Judi Kosiek has been serving the students and faculty of Frost Junior High as a paraprofessional. Before her time there, she also supported Stevenson students as a paraprofessional in a self-contained classroom, and Lakeview students as a paraprofessional. She started working as a substitute in District 54. Judi’s plans for retirement are simple: she will be spending time with her family (her husband who also is a retired teacher, her grown children and their families), traveling, and waking up each morning to see where the day takes her.
At the end of every school year, we celebrate our retirees and thank them for their years of service to our students. We hope you enjoy this virtual gallery as we highlight these exceptional employees throughout the month of May.
The Frost Interact Club proudly celebrates their accomplishments at the Schaumburg Volunteer Luncheon- some of their projects this year include a Afghanistan supply drive to and Adopt A Family holiday program! Congrats and thank you for all your hard work Spartans!
Today our Frost Interact Club played floor hockey with some members of Friendship Village!! Way to be Frost Strong Spartans!
We are celebrating our final days of school! Be sure to join in the fun each day!
From the time she was a 7-year-old student at Link Elementary School, Gina Wirth knew she wanted to be a teacher.
“Those teachers that were able to find the good in all students, they were the ones that made an impression on me,” she said. “I wanted to be that kind of teacher.”
While attending Illinois State University, Gina secured a student teaching position at Mead Jr. High and Collins Elementary School. The Collins principal then hired her to teach full-time in a self-contained special education classroom with fifth- and sixth-grade students. She stayed in that classroom for 20 years and didn’t plan on leaving.
However, Gina also taught accelerated math at Collins and her expertise led to an invitation to apply for a math coach position in District 54. She spent the next 8 years in that role before once again being asked to apply for a new role two year ago - as the dean at Frost Junior High. Gina realized that the dean position was perfect for her because she gets to support both students and staff.
“I forgot how much I love dealing with kids who need that extra support and that’s what I do everyday,” she said. “I sometimes have crazy days, but I couldn’t think of anything else I’d rather do right now.”
Gina works hard to ensure her first encounter with students is a positive one. Whether she is hanging out with them in the lunchroom, talking with them in the hallways or handing out a Spartan Standout to students for demonstrating positive behavior, she is focused on building rapport so the students know she cares about them.
She shares two pieces of advice for new employees - remember that relationships are everything and never underestimate the power of a smile.
“You never know what someone is going through,” Gina said. “They know I'm going to hold them accountable for their behavior, but a lot of them need someone who believes in them, who respects them, trusts them and is going to give them a chance. I think that’s why I love coming to work every day. I love these kids.”
Summer is right around the corner and the perfect way to enjoy it is to join a Summer of 54 camp! Students can build robots, design a t-shirt, learn a new sport, brush up on music skills, and so much more! Registration will open on Tuesday, March 29th in your Parent Portal. Seats fill up fast so sign up to be a part of the Summer of 54 Camp family! If you would like more information on each camp and the courses, please visit tinyurl.com/2022SummerOf54.
