Mrs. Trejo has over 19 years of experience working in the field of education.

Gloria has been instrumental in the development and expansion of the D33’s Dual Language, Special Education, Gate and Gen Education programs. As a current employee of West Chicago, Mrs. Trejo has been able to build relationships with our teachers, parents, support staff and administration.  Her passion for education and for the student body at West Chicago has been demonstrated by her commitment and loyalty to West Chicago D33.

In addition to her roles in D33, Gloria has held a variety of leadership positions. In 2015, she participated in  the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) Leadership Academy where she represented the state and collaborated with school administrators across the country. As a result of Gloria’s collaboration, she helped establish the state affiliate group, Illinois Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (IALAS), which was nationally recognized in 2015.  As a result of her dedication to the community, teachers, and students that she serves, she was awarded “Latino Administrator of the Year” through the National Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents in April 2017.

In 2018, Gloria Trejo was named the DuPage Elementary Principal of the Year, which resulted as Illinois Elementary Principal of the Year through the Illinois Principal Association (IPA). In June 2018, she was selected by the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) and was inducted into the National Distinguished Principals Program. This recognition took place in October 2018 in Washington D.C where she was invited to the White House.  Currently, she represents D33 on Governor Pritzker’s Educational Success Committee to advise and guide the incoming administration on various educational issues. Gloria also serves on the Illinois State Board Evidence-Based Funding committee.

Over the next few months, Trejo will be working with Ms. Davis to ensure a smooth transition.  She will officially begin her duties on July 1, 2019.
