What our staff have to say...

  • "Woodridge 68 provides a collaborative workspace that allows teachers to accomplish things together, so they take less time and come out better. These teams allow for more time for self-care."

    Parker Weber, Debate and Discourse teacher

    "Woodridge 68 is very supportive with work-life balance. They have been very flexible, discreet, respectful and understanding."

    Rosa Maldonado, Receptionist

    District Administrative Center



    "It is a nurturing environment."

    Kimberly Maley, Modified Learning Program Teaching Assistant

    "There are so many amazing opportunities within the district that teach us how to take some time to do mindfulness activities and find ways to put ourselves first outside of the work environment."

    Samia Kaddoura, 6th grade teacher

    Goodrich Elementary School



    "It can be challenging to not work all the time because there always seems to be something we could do. As colleagues, we encourage each other to take time for ourselves too."
