LAKE IN THE HILLS – District 300 will soon start the search to replace Lake in the Hills Elementary Principal Tammy Poole, who recently accepted a principal job in Elmhurst.

Poole has led the Lake in the Hills school since 2005. The Elmhurst District 205 board this week selected her to replace retiring Field Elementary Principal Cindy Gotha. Poole starts her new job on July 1.

Poole previously worked as an elementary assistant principal, a summer school coordinator, and an elementary teacher for 13 years.

She graduated with a bachelor's degree in elementary education from Southern Illinois University and a master's degree from the University of Illinois.
