Jillian Tzounos

Welcome to Fifth Grade!!

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. I have been in the field of education for over 13 years now and I love every minute of it. I started out by teaching preschool while I was receiving my Bachelor's degree. I substitute taught for 3 years while I was getting my Master's degree and searching for a teaching position. I taught one year of 6th grade and then decided to move abroad. I taught in China for 3 years. My third year, I was the principal of 3 different schools and ran 10 different Kindergarten classrooms. This is my fourth year at OACS and I couldn't be happier with my career at this point. 


I got married in February of 2015 and I am a mom of an adorable little girl named, Kyra and a handsome son named, Dean. We also have a little dog named Allie. Mr. Tzounos and I could not be any happier than we are with our little family. :)
