Our Assistant Principal
My name is Jonathan Bacheller, and I am thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at Ontarioville Elementary School. I am excited to be a part of the Ontarioville Elementary School team, students, and families. It is an honor to serve our learning community and contribute to a successful school year in every way I can.
This is my first year as Assistant Principal. Most recently I served as a Dean of Students at Streamwood High School for two years and prior to that, I taught Bilingual Special Education for 13 years. These past experiences have prepared me to collaborate alongside the dedicated Ontarioville staff and I am very excited about the 2019-2020 school year.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Special Education from Roosevelt University. In addition, I pursued a Transitional Bilingual Certification at U.I.C. and completed an MA Principal Preparatory Program through Concordia University in 2017.
I grew up overseas in Trinidad & Tobago and Brazil, and I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. I met my wife Emy while living in Brazil. We have been married for 20 years and have three wonderful children, Alec (13), Namie (11) and Lucas (6).
I look forward to collaborating with our dedicated staff, families, and community to help provide the best educational experience for our students. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself. It will be a pleasure to get to know the families of the Ontarioville Community.
