Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jeff Kalas
Dean of Students
I am happy to be starting my second year as Dean of Students. I have 17 years of educational experience working as a School Counselor and Behavior Specialist in Illinois public schools and at international schools in Greece, Peru, and Germany. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Eastern Illinois University, master’s degree in School Counseling from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and a master’s degree in School Leadership from Concordia University Chicago.
Assisting students to develop a genuine appreciation and respect for themselves, others, and their surroundings occurs through an open sharing of ideas. I would hope to learn as much from my students’ culture and way of life as they would learn from me as their educator. I look forward to helping Magee students navigate their Middle School years.
