Mrs. Nicole Musillami

I am thrilled to be starting my fifth year in D105 as an advanced ELA (English language arts) specialist! This year, I will be supporting young readers and writers at Spring Avenue and Hodgkins Elementary in grades 3-6. In my role, I engage students in complex text, encourage high-level questioning, facilitate conversations, and promote creativity in writing. I am so grateful that I get to mentor such enthusiastic young readers and writers from two amazing schools in D105, helping them reach their goals and meet their full potential. Prior to D105, I was a literacy coach in Schaumburg and an elementary teacher in Baltimore, MD. My favorite activities outside of school include reading (especially historical fiction), crafting, and visiting my family at the Jersey shore. My four year old daughter, Siena, is the sunshine of my life (metaphor!). She is silly, sweet, sassy, and smart (alliteration!). My husband Tony and I have been married for 6 wonderful years. We have a new golden retriever puppy named Luna, who loves to play and cuddle with us. We recently moved to the LaGrange area where he grew up. I love being a part of the community where I teach!

Mr. Chris D'Alessio

Hello! My name is Chris D’Alessio and I am absolutely thrilled to join the District 105 family as your new ELA Advanced Academics Specialist. This will be my nineteenth year in gifted education and I look forward to an exciting year of discovering and learning with the kids. I am originally a suburban Chicago boy and grew up in Glen Ellyn, IL. I have a Master’s Degree in Education from National Louis University and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from American College of Education. I also hold Bachelor's Degrees in Psychology and Communications from the University of Iowa. (Go Hawks!)

I live in La Grange with my wife Betsy, my two children, Ginny and Lewis, and our dog, Marv. I enjoy outdoor activities with the family, reading and writing, and every aspect of food. I would love to meet as many members of the District 105 School community as possible and can’t wait to start working with the students!
