• Department of Student Services

    Greetings Prairie Hills Family and Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year, 

    It is with great excitement that I write this introduction to you as the new Director 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 17 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, Principal, and Supervisor of Students. 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 Pursue Excellence with Equity, Empathy and Empowerment.

    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
