Jeff Bragg, Principal


Welcome to Otter Creek School! Located in the southwestern part of Elgin, Otter Creek opened its doors in 2002 with an enrollment of nearly 400 students. Our school name was chosen by students of Otter Creek. Our building is now home to more than 750 learners from preschool through 6th grade. We offer a variety of programs including General Education. Early Childhood, and Dual Language.


I began my teaching career in Glen Ellyn School District 41. I taught fourth and fifth grade for 16 years followed by one year as an elementary math coach and one year as an assistant principal. I came to Otter Creek in August 2005. I have the honor of starting my tenth year as principal of the school.


I am fortunate to work with a talented and dedicated staff, which includes teachers and support staff. Alone we cannot make a difference. It takes a village. I strongly believe that when school and families work together, great things can happen. I encourage you to find ways to partner with our school and parent organization (PTO) to make great things happen at Otter Creek.


Here’s to a great school year!!
