Director of Student Services
My name is Laura Guarraci, and it is my pleasure to serve as the Director of Student Services in Niles Elementary School District 71. I am honored to be part of the Culver School community and look forward to continuing to connect with each of you and your children.
I started in this role at Culver at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. Prior to joining Culver I was a student services learning coordinator in North Shore School District 112 for six years and taught special education for seven years in District 112 and at Cove School. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Special Education at Northeastern Illinois University and received my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia University.
Working in Niles feels a bit like coming home to me because I live in the surrounding area and even held my first job at Niles Oasis Waterpark! I have three children of varying ages, and we can often be found at Iceland for a hockey practice or game, or attending swimming lessons at Niles Family Fitness. I hope to be able to introduce them to you at one of our many extracurricular or family events this year.
For those of you whom I have not yet met, I look forward to the opportunity and hope that we will get together soon, whether it's at a meeting, in the office, at drop-off of pick-up, or at one of our nighttime engagements.
My door is always open, so please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself, or contact me via email or phone to talk further.
