Assistant Principal Steve Foster
I'm proud to say this is 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 kindergartners until they leave us at the end of fourth grade.
This is my 25th 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, and going to live theatre. I live in Chicago with my 16 year old Westie, Keiron.
