Sally Winger is a retired elementary school teacher and recently joined the Foundation’s “Bright & Early DuPage” Initiative Committee.

“I was reading about the ‘Bright & Early DuPage’ program in the newspaper and thought I should be an advocate for it,” said Winger.  “I made a call to the Foundation, and now I am volunteering and getting involved.”

Winger taught in Addison Public School District #4 for many years in its At Risk Preschool Program (later named the Preschool Enrichment Program.)  When Program funding was no longer available from the state and the District discontinued the program, she taught kindergarten-aged children with Individual Education Plans (IEP).  She taught in Addison for more than 22 years before retiring.

A graduate of the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana with a degree in business, Winger lives in Lombard with her two children, Krista and Justin, and her sister.  She is involved with the Habitat for Humanity DuPage ReStore in Addison.
