Principal Kathy Barker

I have been the proud principal of Troy Craughwell for the last eleven years.  Prior to becoming a principal, I was a reading specialist at Troy Heritage Trail and taught both kindergarten and first grade at three different Troy Elementary Schools - Craughwell, Shorewood, and Heritage Trail.

I was a Troy student myself from third to eighth grade and all three of my own children attended Troy.  You can say that my family loves Troy! 

My favorite thing to do when I am away from Craughwell is spending time with family and friends at our Wisconsin lake house.  I love boating in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter! 








Assistant Principal Steve Foster

I'm proud to say this begins my sixth year serving as the assistant principal at Troy Craughwell.  I have the pleasure of serving and watching the Troy Craughwell students learn and grow from the time they enter our building as 4 year old pre-schoolers until they leave us at the end of fourth grade.  

This is my 26th year in education.  I taught first, second, and third grades before joining the Troy 30-C District as an Instructional Coach.  I was an Instructional Coach for five years before becoming the assistant principal at both Troy Craughwell and Troy Heritage Trail schools. The following year I became full time assistant principal at Troy Craughwell.

I received my Elementary Education degree at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, IL.  I obtained a master's degree in Teaching and Learning at University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL, and a second master's degree in Educational Administration at Governor's State University in University Park, IL.

In my free time I enjoy running 5Ks, spending time with family and friends, ushering and attending live theater
