About Me



Hello and welcome to my page!  I am in my 24th year teaching special education students at Tyler School.  Over the years, I have worked with 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade students as their resource teacher and/or as their instructional teacher, depending upon the year.  Working with my students rewards me everyday and I consider myself lucky that I get to have a job where I can laugh on a daily basis.  I can think of nothing else I would rather do for a career.  

Please contact me through my school email, pdomagalla@nlsd122.org if you have questions or concerns or you can call me at 815-485-2398 X 6399.

Quick Facts

Years Teaching:

Graduated From:

I earned my bachelor degree at Eastern New Mexico University and my master's degree at Benedictine College in Lisle, IL.

Favorite Thing About Teaching:

I  love teaching at Tyler School for several reasons.  First, I am guaranteed to laugh each and every day.  My kids at school are so smart, humorous, talented, and they say the funniest things.  A also love my job because I get to work with and become friends with some of the most compassionate, funny, and encouraging people I have ever known.  It makes me smile and I feel rewarded when I am able to teach my kids new information and watch their face light up with pride.


During my free time, I love to read, hang out with my family, watch movies, walk my 2 golden retrievers (Tucker and Cinder), and visit our cabin in Wisconsin and swim/play with my dogs. I especially love having quality time with my husband and grandchildren!
