My name is Della M. Weaver. I am honored and humbled to introduce myself as the Principal of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran School for the 2023-2024. First, welcome to all returning families as well as to all new families. Hopefully, you have enjoyed many memorable “Family Moments” with your children during this summer break that will help to sustain you through times of trails and gladden your hearts even more through triumphant times. Family is very important to me. I welcome and cherish this opportunity to continue serving St. Paul! Whereas, I know the returning St. Paul School Families, and look forward to meeting the new families, my goal is to get to know each and every family even better through our interactions during this school year. You are in my heart and prayers.
I came to St. Paul as a seasoned Chicago Public Schools (CPS) elementary school teacher with experience in teaching, literacy instructional coaching, administration of after-school programs, mentoring new teachers, designing, developing and implementing a schoolwide Young Author Program, and coordinating a parent program. My work at St. Paul School began in 2013. During this tenure, I have served as Title I Teacher, Reading Instructional Coach, Upper Grade Math Teacher, Provided Small Group and 1-on-1 Instruction and Interventions, Presented Professional Development, Assistant Principal, and New Teacher Mentor. Education is my passion!
