Megan Majchrowicz, President

Hi! My name is Megan Majchrowicz, and I am thrilled to be the Butler PTO President. I am a full-time working mommy to Isabella, age 10, and Ian, age 6. Isabella will be in 6th Grade at Hadley Junior High next year and Ian will be in 1st grade at Butler. I am also a wife of 14 years; spending most of my free time volunteering and enjoying time with my family. I served as Butler PTO President for 2 years, working hard to bring new events and ideas to Butler. Some of those ideas included the Popsicles @ The Playground on the 1st day of school, the annual Halloween Costume Party at Konow’s, The Polar Express Parent’s Night Out, and many Food Truck Events!

While my daughter Isabella was at Butler, I was extremely involved, volunteering with all of the events including the Daddy Daughter Dance, Scholastic Book Fairs, Breakfast with Santa, classroom parties, art appreciation, as well as keeping busy with Staff Appreciation all year long!

I cannot wait to have my “little man” at Butler next year. It means so much to me to be involved at Butler, and I love to see the difference it makes in the lives of all of our kids. I was also very active with the Hadley PTO board, helping to organize this year’s Halloween dance. To me, volunteering is a very rewarding experience. It allows me to help make the lives of both students and staff better. Being in the school every day, and helping out wherever I can, is one of the reasons I love volunteering. Seeing the smiles on the kiddo’s faces makes it all worthwhile!

We have an AMAZING STAFF at Butler, dedicated to our little ones and their families. Being on the PTO allows me the opportunity to give back and help make Butler even better! I am excited for the opportunity to be PRESIDENT AGAIN next year.

I have a lot of new ideas and fun event ideas in store for next year, and I hope that I get to spend more time getting to know more of our WONDERFUL BUTLER FAMILIES and to help continue to make Butler GREAT!!

Linda Winterfeldt, Vice President

Hello, my name is Linda Winterfeldt, my husband Ryan and I are the parents of two amazing children. My daughter Hailey is going into second grade and my son Jacob is two years-old. Being a stay-at-home mom has given me the opportunity to volunteer at Butler School by being a Classroom Liaison for Art Appreciation, helping at the Book Fairs, Santa’s Workshop, Treat Days, and co-coordinating Pastries with Parents. I am also a Cheer Coach for the Homer Stallions.

I truly enjoy seeing the children and their families having fun at all the events I am involved with. The Butler Staff and Families are the most welcoming group of people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. I am very excited for the opportunity to serve on the Butler PTO Executive Board as Vice President!

Teresa Czerwien, Secretary 


Hello, my name is Teresa Czerwien, I have 4 children, Sophia 2nd Grade, Matthew 1st Grade, Ben and Sara are in Pre K. My husband, Chris and I have lived in Lockport for 10 years. Before deciding to be a full time stay at home Mom, I worked for Ace Corporate for 12 years. I enjoy volunteering at Butler School. This past year I have been an Art Mom, co-chaired Pastries with Parents, helped at the Santas workshop, Classroom Parties and Treat days. I have enjoyed getting to know the Butler staff and kids throughout the year.


Mary Gliwa, Treasurer


Mary Gliwa is our 2020-2021 PTO Treasurer. Mary is the mother of Jack, 4th grade, as well as Kaitlin, Grace and AJ, all former Homer 33C students. This is Mary's 3rd year serving on Butlers PTO Board, but brings with her 15 years of volunteering in our district, along with 2 years serving as treasurer on the Homer District 33C PTO Executive Board.

Katie Krol, Financial Secretary



My name is Katie Krol and I am excited to join the Butler PTO as Financial Secretary. My husband, Ryan, and I have lived in Lockport since 2010. We are the proud parents of Jace, who will attend first grade at Butler in the 2020-2021 school year, and Grant, who is 3.

I am a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and worked for a neighboring school district from 2011-2017. During that time, I worked in three different K-5 buildings, servicing students with a variety of speech and language disorders.

Once my youngest was born, I made the tough decision to resign and stay home with my boys. Being a stay-at-home mom has made it possible for me to volunteer many times at Schilling this school year. I am a PTO member and have volunteered for classroom parties, field trips, treat days, Fun Fridays, and both scholastic bookfairs. I am also the co-coordinator for my son’s Art Appreciation class. I have enjoyed being able to spend time in my son’s class and school.

I am thankful to have to opportunity to possibly be on the 2020-2021 Butler PTO Executive Board as Financial Secretary. I am a very dependable, organized, positive person who collaborates well with others. I am looking forward to being as involved as I can at Butler next school year.
