Alexander elected to IASB Board of Directors

William 'Bill' Alexander
William "Bill" Alexander, school board president at New Berlin CUSD 16, has joined the board of directors of the Illinois Association of School Boards, representing the Association’s Abe Lincoln Division.

The resident of rural New Berlin is a retired school administrator, having previously served as an elementary school teacher and principal and an assistant regional superintendent. He has been an adjunct professor in math and science methods and philosophy of education at Benedictine University, math-teaching methods at Blackburn College, and worked in student teaching supervision through Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. Alexander also worked for the Illinois State Board of Education prior to being elected to the New Berlin Board of Education in 2008.

“I’ve been in education for 41 years. It's an amazing experience to see the role education has in our society – as a teacher, administrator, parent, board member, and now a director with IASB,” says Alexander, who has areas of interest in school law and operations.

He previously served the Abe Lincoln Division as vice chair, division chair and substitute director before his election as director. He replaces the outgoing director, Lisa Weitzel of Ball-Chatham CUSD 5, who served on IASB’s Board of Directors since 2013 and did not seek re-election in 2017.
