A Message From Dr.Darnell

My name is Shane Darnell and I am the Principal of Sandwich High School. Prior to taking this position, for three years I was an Assistant Principal at Thompson Middle School in CUSD 303. Prior to working in St. Charles I was a Dean of Students at Yorkville Middle School for six years and prior to that I taught Driver Education and Physical Education at Yorkville High School in CUSD 115. I am very much looking forward to becoming part of the Sandwich Community.

I am a graduate of Old Dominion University, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Health and Physical Education with an endorsement in Drivers Education. In 2009, I attained my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Aurora University and in 2021 I received my Ed.D in Leadership in Educational Administration from Aurora University.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. My family consists of my wife, Tracy, my 15-year-old son, Kenton, and my 9-year-old son, Blake. In addition, we spend a lot of our time at baseball tournaments as my oldest plays travel baseball and my youngest plays a bit of everything. We currently reside in Yorkville, IL.

My goal as Principal of Sandwich High School is to ensure we are doing what is best for all students socially, emotionally, and academically while providing the very best educational experiences and opportunities for all students. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.

Sincerely,
Dr. Shane Darnell
