Mrs. Vacik

I am extremely honored to be the principal of Irene King Elementary School. I have a long history in Valley View School District. I was a student at Oak View Elementary School, Jane Addams Middle School and Bolingbrook High School. In 2001 I began my education journey as a fourth grade teacher at Irene King. From there I went on to be a district mathematics and science curriculum coordinator for K-5. I always knew that Irene King was my home. I have a very strong connection with the students and community. In 2008, I became the assistant principal at Irene King and in 2009 I was honored to be offered the principal position at Irene King. I love the school community and the family feeling that I get every day when I enter the building. I am very fortunate to be able to have a job that inspires me to be a champion for children. I am also grateful for all the parents that put their trust in us every day to educate, love and partner with them to shape the lives of their children. It is truly an honor to be a part of the Irene King family.

I have two adult children, two dogs, and a husband who understands my love and commitment for every student at Irene King. I am truly blessed to be able to come to work every day and know that I am supported by an entire community! 

I sincerely want to thank you for entrusting your children to the wonderful staff at Irene King. Please do not hesitate to reach out to anyone at the school with any questions.
