Mrs. Michelle Pytel

Hello!  My name is Michelle Pytel.  I am pleased to say I have been working at Irene King for over a decade.  I have been blessed to work with many incredible educators, students and their families.  Each new school year brings excitement, challenges and victories.  I am confident if we continue to work together our school year will be a success!

I have a beautiful family, my husband Joe and 3 sons, Aiden, Jax and Nolan.  We spend most of our days playing outside, creating messes and making memories.  😀

I am a graduate of Benedictine University where I received my teaching certificate as well as a graduate from the College of St. Francis where I received my master's degree.
