Frankfort School District 157-C Board of Education has named a new assistant principal for Chelsea Intermediate School. Doriane Woods, of McLean County Unit 5 Fairview Elementary School in Normal, will assume her new role Aug. 1 at an annual salary of $60,000.
She replaces Dan Prorok who left to pursue an administrative position in another district.
“Doriane comes to us highly recommended for being an instructional leader with a focus on students,” Supt. Maura J. Zinni said.
Woods has a Type 75 Administrative Certification and master’s degrees in educational administration and reading and a bachelor’s degree in elementary education — all from Illinois State University. She served two years as a principal designee and has 13 years of hands-on intermediate school teaching experience.
“Doriane’s background demonstrates good communication, great collaboration skills and a focus on the student. These characteristics are attributes of an excellent administrator. We believe that she will develop a strong connection with our Chelsea students, families and staff,” Zinni said.
