Our Principal

  • J Jiminez

    Hello Liberty Families,
    It is a pleasure to welcome you to our school. I am Mrs. Juanita Jimenez, principal of Liberty. I have been principal at Liberty since the 2013-14 school year. I feel very privileged to be the principal of such a dedicated and caring school. Our teachers and staff work very hard, every day, to provide our students with all the skills and understanding that will help them achieve all the goals they set for themselves. I got my start in U-46 as a dual language teacher for grades 4-6 at Channing Elementary in Elgin, where I spent 14 wonderful years. After that, I served as the Administrative Intern/Assistant Principal at Sunnydale Elementary in Streamwood before coming to Liberty. 

    I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Masters of Arts in Teaching as well as an Administrative certificate from Aurora University. I am also a National Board certified teacher.  I am currently completing my doctoral degree in Curriculum and Instruction.   
    My husband and I have lived in Elgin for more than 25 years. I am dedicated to our district, to our school and more importantly, to making a difference for every student at Liberty Elementary. Please contact me at any time with questions, concerns or suggestions. My email is JuanitaJimenez@U-46.org.  

    Thank you. 

    Mrs. Juanita Jimenez
