Ms. Theresa Smith, Supervisor of Student Services 


    Greetings Prairie Hills Family and Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, 

    It is with great excitement that I write this introduction to you as the new Supervisor of Student Services.  I am honored to have the opportunity to serve in this capacity. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 16 years. I have worked with students ranging in age from 1st through 8th grade in a variety of roles. I have been a Special Educator, Dean, an Assistant Principal, and Principal. I have been a member of Prairie Hills School District 144 staff since 2014.  I am thrilled to bring my skills as an Educational Leader and a Special Education Specialist to our entire district as we Re-Imagine education. 

    I am excited that our students are returning into our school buildings with a Re-Imagined focus on Positive Behavioral Intervention Supports (PBIS) and Social Emotional Learning for all students.   

    I look forward to working with and assisting our families, staff and students.  

    Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at thsmith@phsd144.net or 708.210.0279.   

    Let’s have a great and safe year! 


    Ms. Theresa Smith
