Welcome to 5th Grade!
5th Grade Principal: Mr. Jeff Evans ext. 208
Counselor: Ms. Maria Escarza ext. 350
Welcome To Glenview.
My name is Jeff Evans and I am the 5th grade Administrator. I was born and raised in East Moline. I attended Hillcrest Elementary for grades K-5, Hoffman Middle School for 6th, Glenview Junior High for 7th and 8th, and United Township High School graduating in 1986. I continued my education at Black Hawk College and graduated from Augustana College in 1991. I received my Masters Degree in Administration from Western Illinois University in 1996.
I have been at Glenview for over 25 years. I started as a substitute teacher in 1991 and was officially hired on the staff in 1992. I have taught Math, Language Arts, Reading, Social Studies, and Exploratory in grades 6th-8th. I started my career in Administration in 2001 as an Administrative Intern. I have been fortunate to work with excellent colleagues who have provided me advice and guidance. I am very proud to be a part of the EMSD37 community.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. As the kids at school know, I am also a Cubs and Bears fan. This can be tough some times as the Cardinal and Packer fans remind me from season to season. I also enjoy the sport of drag racing. This one always throws the kids for a loop. The usual response when I tell them is, “You?.....No way!”
I am very proud to be a member of the staff at Glenview. I look forward to working with you and your student as we make this the best year possible!
