Message from the Principal
Welcome to Luther J. Schilling School! I am honored to be principal of such a wonderful learning community and dedicated to providing your child with the best experience possible.

Assuming the principalship of Schilling School (Grades 1-4) in 2015 was a little bit like coming home for Candis Gasa. The educator began her teaching career at the school in 2001 when she was hired to teach third grade. She became the District’s Gifted Coordinator in 2007 and was promoted to Assistant Principal at Hadley Middle School in 2013. In 2015, she was selected to become the principal of the elementary section of Schilling School. “I’m coming full circle,” she said. “It’s a good fit.” Mrs. Gasa received her Liberal Arts degree from the University of Iowa, majoring in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading and Language Arts. She went on to receive her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia University, Chicago. She and her husband, Zach, are the proud parents of twins, Zaden and Emery.

Nate Baldwin, Assistant Principal
Nate Baldwin knew at an early age that he wanted to help children build a strong foundation for learning and become lifelong learners. He grew up watching his mother instill a love of learning in children when she taught kindergarten in Chicago. He would often visit her classroom (when he had a day off from school) and observe as she interacted with students and taught them the building blocks of learning. He never tired of seeing the joy and excitement on a child’s face when he or she learned a new concept.
In high school, Mr. Baldwin began working with children at a day camp, offering guidance and counseling as they learned about the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. Over the past ten years he has been the kindergarten director. He coordinated schedules, organized professional development and collaborated with parents.
He received his Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Ohio University and Master’s degree in Leadership Administration from Benedictine University. Before joining the Homer 33C family in 2017, he taught first and second-grade students in Indian Prairie School District 204 for 13 years. In addition to teaching, he held various leadership roles within the schools he taught. He lives in Aurora with his wife, Kathleen, and their two children.
