Kim DeFrancesco

Hello! My name is Kim DeFrancesco and I am a special education teacher at Pleviak. I attended University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an undergraduate. After graduating, I worked as a special education teaching assistant for two years and attended National Louis University, where I earned a master’s degree in special education. This is my sixth year teaching in the district. I currently have nine awesome students and one wonderful teaching assistant. I love working in kindergarten and seeing the amazing growth that occurs over the duration of the year. When I am not at work, I love spending time with my husband, daughter, and our boxer puppy. Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me by phone at (847)270-9490x3539 or by email at
