Ms. jana ream
My name is Jana Ream and I am excited to serve as Principal of Freeman Elementary! I have served many roles in the district including Assistant Principal at Nicholson and Schneider Elementary Schools, Private Placement Coordinator, and School Psychologist at Herget Middle School. I strongly believe in the bidirectional influences between academic and social-emotional well-being of students. I am proud to be part of a district that supports the individual needs of all students.
Ms. melissa righter
My name is Melissa Righter and it is my pleasure to continue to serve as Freeman’s Assistant Principal. I joined the West Aurora and Freeman community at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.
My educational career started in Cicero as an Art educator and I began my administrative career in 2013 with experiences at the elementary and junior high level as an Assistant Principal.
I believe in the importance of building strong relationships and connections; supporting the whole child to grow into life-long learners, and reinvigorating/embracing the joy of learning.
In my spare time, I enjoy doing creative projects like candle making and painting, staying active by cycling and running, and spending time with my daughter, Ella.
I look forward to this upcoming year and continuing to support the Freeman community.
