We would like to introduce the new principal of St. George School, Charlotte Pratl. Ms. Pratl has been part of the Catholic educational system her entire life. She comes to St. George with many years of experience both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. She is energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children.

Ms. Pratl's teaching career spans from schools and grades in Park Ridge, Lemont, Jacksonville, Florida and Oak Lawn, just to name a few. Her last fifteen years have been spent at St. Catherine of Alexandria School in Oak Lawn as the Jr. High Language Arts teacher and assistant principal. She has had the privilege to work with many families and have seen many students succeed in school and beyond. Ms. Pratl has been married for twenty-five years, has two children and a crazy dog named Guinness. Ms. Pratl states "I realize how important positive memories; both within the family and the school can guide a student to a successful future. My hope is to bring about many of these positive memories within the school by setting high academic expectations for all children and by providing supportive systems to assure they are met."

We welcome Principal Charlotte Pratl and wish her many years of success at St. George School!!!
