President-elect - Jacki Block

Jacki was born and raised in Plainfield’s neighboring town, Oswego.  She has lived in various Midwest cities, but she and her husband decided to move back closer to home after having their daughter in order to be closer to family.  Her daughter is in second grade and loves going to school at Freedom.

Vice President - Amy Wilson

Amy has two boys currently at Freedom, Troy (5th grade) and Jayden (3rd grade).   Prior to becoming a mom, Amy worked full-time as a paralegal. When her oldest was about to start kindergarten she decided to leave her job so she could spend more time with her boys. Now that both are in school full time, she is often at school volunteering in the classrooms or substituting in the lunchroom. 

Amy has served as the chair of yearbook and co-chair of Box Tops/rewards.  She enjoys watching her boys play their many sports and traveling. 

 

Secretary - Estelle Paciero

Estelle grew up on the west coast of France and moved to the USA 16 years ago. She has three kids, two daughters attending Heritage Grove Middle School, one in 6th grade, and the other in 7th grade, and a son in 2nd grade. She has a degree in Secondary Education with a major in French and a minor in Spanish. She has been a stay-at-home mom since her kids were born but last year, she decided to step back into the workforce, a few hours a week, teaching French to elementary students. While at home with her kids, she volunteered her time at Freedom and at MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers), and she also runs a French group in the area. She is really excited to be the PTO secretary this year and cannot wait to meet you.
