• Welcome Back




     Welcome to the 2018/2019 School Year! 


    My name is Catherine Kotowski and this is my 16th year as the Social Worker at Highlands School. The kids call me Ms. K. for short.

    I have been employed by our awesome school district however for 18 years.

    I have also been the PBIS universal coach but am currently one of the Tier 2 Service Providers.


    I also serve as a PBIS Check In- Check Out Facilitator


    I received both a Bachelor's and a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Illinois at Chicago.


    In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking and playing with my dogs, watching movies, reading and shopping.

     If I can be of assistance in any way to you or your child, please don't hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by email at ckotowski@phsd144.net or by phone at (708) 335-9773 Extension 2530
    I look forward to meeting you as well as helping make this school year the BEST one ever for your child!
