Jeanne Campion was appointed to the board in July 2014 to fill an open seat and has been elected twice since then to full terms. Her term expires in 2023.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics Education from Illinois State University and a master’s degree also in Mathematics from the University of Illinois. I have taught at: Gibson City High School, Champaign Central High School, Parkland College, the University of Illinois and Mahomet-Seymour Junior High. In 2016 I retired from teaching.
I am a big believer that reading is the key for education. Most students complain about doing word problems in math. For quite a few of these students, it's because they are poor readers. Being a good reader can help all aspects of a student’s education.
Compared to when I grew up, libraries have changed a lot. We not only have hard copies of books, but e books, audio books, movies, and computers in the library for patrons use. Personally, I try to read about one book a week. If our library does not have the book I want, I can put it on hold using cloud library or borrowing from another library in the area. Mahomet Public Library has been a great resource for me and my family.
My family consists of my husband Jack who works for Farm Credit Illinois, daughter Jessica who is married & works in Chicago, son Michael who works in Corning NY, and our cat Rey.
