Mr. Tim Callahan
It is my honor and pleasure to serve as the Madison Elementary School principal. This marks my thirteenth year in this position. Before coming to the Madison community, I was the principal at Johnson Elementary in Warrenville for five years and assistant principal at Johnson for one year. After graduating from Eastern Illinois University, I began my career at Pleasant Hill Elementary. There I worked for seven years. I began as a paraprofessional in the reading and special education programs. Then taught for six years in first grade and third grade. Along the way, I earned a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Aurora University and I am proud to say that I have worked in these excellent District 200 schools throughout my entire career.
I believe passionately that public education helps to build and bolster our community's strong foundation. While guiding and inspiring students through rigorous social/emotional and academic standards; we have the opportunity and responsibility to ensure that all students whether rich/poor, native-born/immigrant, boy/girl seize the opportunities of a great education so that they become great citizens of this country and our world. It is an awesome responsibility and I am thrilled to be a part of it!
It is my pleasure to serve and be a part of this District 200 community where I have lived most of my life. I was born and raised in Warrenville and Wheaton and my family calls this community home as well. My wife, Lisa, and I are blessed with six children, Ruby and Jackson (19), McKenna (18), and Lauren, (16), Nana (14), and Nique (10).
I enjoy getting to know each member of our Madison community and hope that this has helped you get to know me as well.
