Setting a Course for Success with Terese Sullivan

Last year Regina Dominican welcomed Ms. Sullivan into the Panther community. Sullivan is the freshmen and sophomore guidance counselor, Peer Leader moderator, and the coordinator for Caritas.

Sullivan has earned multiple degrees from various institutions. She received her undergraduate from Illinois State University with a degree in special education; a masters in counseling from Northeastern Illinois University, and a masters in school administration from Concordia University.

Before coming to Regina, Sullivan worked in public education for 35 years. Sullivan retired but realized she had more to offer. Sullivan applied for a job here at Regina since she has a Catholic education background herself and loved the small, nurturing environment of a faith based education. Sullivan was excited by the opportunity at Regina and states that she is “lucky to be here.”

Sullivan describes herself as positive and optimistic and is a firm believer that one learns the most from one’s own mistakes. Sullivan believes that in order to find the road to success, an individual must first overcome your challenges.

In her free time, Sullivan enjoys gardening, DIY’s, and exercising. Fun facts about Sullivan include that she is one of seven children and she only adopts rescue dogs. Sullivan family consists of her husband Kevin and two daughters, Mary and Maggie.

Regina is happy to have Sullivan’s positive and encouraging presence in school.
