New Staff Spotlight – Yvonne Morrongiello

Sycamore Community School District is excited to welcome Yvonne Morrongiello to the family! Yvonne graduated from Glenbard West High School and went on to Aurora University to achieve her Bachelors and Masters in Social Work. This career has helped her develop her three best characteristics- empathy, organization, and supportiveness.

Yvonne’s most interesting job she has had was when she worked at a candy store in the mall and had to dress up as a bunny for Easter. When she’s not dressing up in her holiday attire, she can be found spending time with family, cooking, eating, or shopping.

When Yvonne remembers being the “buddy” for a new student in need when she was a student, which still impacts her today. She hopes that the needs of the children in the Sycamore community will be met as well, so that they can all be successful in school. Her favorite part of getting ready for the new school year has been decorating her office and getting organized. Her wish for the first day of school is that everyone feels comfortable and happy to be back! So far, Yvonne’s favorite part about Sycamore is the family feeling in the community and the beautiful older buildings in the area.
