Ms. Dermody
Hello! My name is Samantha Dermody and I have been in the special education field since 2009. I grew up in the Garfield Ridge area of Chicago, and recently moved to Oak Lawn. I joined the Special Education team at Palos West in 2015! My journey into special education began working as a paraprofessional for summer school while completing my undergraduate program  in Speech Pathology and Audiology from the University of Iowa. From there I moved into working full time as a para-educator while earning a Master's Degree in Special Education from the University of Phoenix. Once completing this degree, I taught for three years as the primary Communication Development teacher for the Southwest Cook County Cooperative. I am very excited to continue my journey here at Palos West and working with your child! I am honored to be apart of such a great learning community, and look forward to working together to ensure the future success of these children!
