Angela Wells

Running for Parent Representative | Currently on LSC: Yes
I've lived in the Lakeview community since 1974. I served on the LSC at LeMoyne Elementary before its closing, and also at Greeley Elementary. As a pro-active parent, I have had amazing success with CPS as my daughter graduated from Walter Payton High School in 2007 and from Stanford University in June 2011. My son has high functioning autism, and has done very well at Lakeview, and I am looking forward to working with the staff to take Lakeview High School to the next level. I'm impressed with the curriculum at Lakeview, and would like to see more parental involvement so that our children will get the quality education they deserve.
