Dr. Terry Collette

Welcome to another wonderful school year at Hope D. Wall School. I am honored once again to have the privilege to serve as the building principal for the 2021-2022 school year.

I am a graduate of West Aurora High School, and, during my time there I was able to participate in the Child Development program where I was introduced to Hope Wall School. I received my undergraduate degree in Special Education from Northern Illinois University and both my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from Aurora University. I served as a Transition teacher at Hope Wall for 16 years before becoming Principal at Hope Wall in 2015.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to educate your children and young adults! We firmly believe that every child can learn, that every family we encounter is valuable, and that our talented staff, dedicated families, and hard-working students can accomplish anything! We are here to make a difference in the lives of our students, each and every day.

Go Rockets!
