Hello Plum Grove Community,
My name is Teresa Ostoich and I am the school nurse. In January 2020 I transferred from Hunting Ridge to Plum Grove Junior High as the school nurse. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Plum Grove team working together to support the students, families and community.
I am originally from Joliet, grew up in a large family and since freshman year in high school I knew I wanted to become a nurse. I attended St. Francis Medical Center College of Nursing in Peoria, IL. My professional experience spanned all areas in a pediatric hospital setting. I worked as a substitute school nurse in district 15 from 2006-2014. In 2014 I accepted a full-time school nurse position at Hunting Ridge Elementary School.
I have been married since 1983 and I have five children who attended District 15 schools. I am an avid sports fan and my favorite team to cheer for is the Chicago Cubs. In my free time I love being active outside, keeping up with Chicago sports, reading, traveling to any sunny destination, and spending time with family and friends.
