Principal's Message

John Baldwin Community,

Each year, John Baldwin educators nominate one of their colleagues to be recognized at the Danville/Sycamore Rotary as an outstanding teacher.  Teachers are honored for their hard work, community involvement and dedication to their profession. In the last four years we have recognized, Todd Swenson, Denise Tapfer, Kathy Casotti, and Marissa Ware. Here are just a few of the things that John Baldwin teachers had this to say about our recipient for this year:

  • "She shows her professionalism and positive attitude in everything she does." 
  • "She is a warm and compassionate teacher who works closely with our
  • specialists to meet the needs of all of our students."
  • "She is such a hard worker and you can tell she really loves her students."
  • "I cannot say enough about her dedication to her students, her colleagues and the school community."

It is my pleasure to share that Karen Kolokithas has been selected as John Baldwin's Rotary Teacher of the Year. Karen truly puts her heart into everything that she does. Karen will be joined by her family as she is recognized at the April Rotary meeting. Please join me in congratulating Karen!
