Steve Isackson

Steve Isackson, originally hailing from Chicago, is a dedicated resident of Schaumburg. With a career spanning over five decades, Steve currently serves as a Realtor at Baird and Warner Real Estate in Schaumburg, with 43 years of experience in the field. Notably, Steve finds immense joy in assisting his former students and their families in finding their dream homes.

Prior to his real estate endeavors, Steve dedicated 36 years of his life to teaching within District 54, ultimately retiring in 2005. However, retirement didn’t halt his passion for education as he continued to substitute teach for an additional 14 years, summing up to a half-century of teaching within the district. His teaching journey began at Nathan Hale School in 1969, where he taught various subjects including Special Education, 5th grade and 6th grade. Additionally, he served as an assistant to the principal from 1978 to 1980.

Transitioning to Margaret Mead Junior High in 1980, Steve’s impact expanded as he taught 7th-grade language arts, coached cross country and track, and guided student council activities until his retirement. Beyond the classroom, Steve’s dedication to youth extended to the founding of the Schaumburg Teen Center, affectionately known as “The Barn,” in 1976. Serving as the Chairman of the Teen Center Advisory Board until its closure prior to the Covid pandemic, Steve remains immensely proud of the center’s accomplishments in supporting the local teenage community.

Reflecting on his decades-long tenure within District 54, Steve expresses gratitude for the privilege of working with countless exceptional students and colleagues. He looks forward to continuing his commitment to education and community involvement, particularly in supporting the initiatives of the Foundation.
