My name is Michelle Stiff and I am thrilled to be on the ballot running for Joliet Township High School 204 School Board. I have been solving problems, serving the public and fighting for equitable rights for students and families for almost 20 years.  I've owned and operated a  small business serving young children and families.  I also taught Reading and Math in the middle and high school level for over 12 years, and currently I am serving as an administrator responsible for special education programming for elementary and middle schools.

I currently serve as a Precinct Committee Woman in Troy Township where I am also the Secretary.  I am the Director of Education and Programming for the Illinois Democratic Women of Will County and am the Auditor for the Will County Central Committee.

My quest is to make sure that…

I am an advocate for all stakeholders, providing a safe school environment and bridging students and the community.

  • It is our responsibility to make sure our students get the best education.

  • Making sure there is oversight and transparency in the educational process.

  • Creating a safe culture for students and employees.

  • Budget Transparency, no excess spending.

I hope that I can count on you to have a successful and victorious campaign!
