Chris Jakicic, EdD, served as principal of Woodlawn Middle School in Illinois from its opening day in 1999 through the spring of 2007. Under her leadership, the staff embraced the PLC model as they added collaborative content teams focused on the four critical questions. During this time, they also began using common formative assessments to determine which students needed more time and support, and used the results to shape their instructional strategies. Woodlawn is one of the schools featured on allthingsplc.info. Dr. Jakicic began her career teaching middle school science before serving as principal of Willow Grove Elementary School in Illinois for nine years. At Willow Grove, she helped teachers develop high-performing collaborative teams to assure success for all students.
