Dear MacArthur Community,

We are excited to welcome Ms. Dilshad Patel as our Assistant Principal for the 2020-2021 school year! Below is a message from Ms. Patel:

Dear MacArthur Community,

It is an honor to serve as the new assistant principal at MacArthur International Spanish Academy.  I have been working in Schaumburg School District 54 for the last 13 years, starting as a 5th and 6th grade teacher at Stevenson Elementary School.  I taught for five years before becoming a Quantum Learning Instructional Coach and New Teacher Mentor for the district.  I have also served on the district’s Happiness Team, promoting the principles of positive psychology.

While I am now stepping into this new role, MacArthur is a familiar school that I have had the privilege of supporting as a district coach and mentor.  It is evident that MacArthur is a place where students, families, and staff all work together toward the district’s mission of ensuring student success.   I look forward to continuing to support this mission with you as we build a partnership together as a MacArthur community.
