Barrington 220 Welcomes 2 New Techs

Please join the Barrington 220 Department of Technology & Innovation in welcoming two new Technology Support Associates to the team, Adam Fajnor and Kaitlyn Pankiewicz. When you call x. 1500 for technology support, you are likely to speak to either Adam or Kaitlyn. You can learn a bit more about our new Techs below.

Adam Fajnor
Technology Support Associate

The Steve Jobs keynote speech announcing the iPhone 4 was when I became really interested in tech. When I was in high school, I would jailbreak* devices and try to understand the ins and outs of the devices. I graduated from Western Illinois University in 2016 where I majored in Network Technologies and minored in Information Systems. I worked 2 summers at Barrington 220 and thought it was a great atmosphere in which to work. When I graduated from college, I saw there was an opportunity to work in the district as a tech and I couldn’t pass it up.

I love watching/playing basketball (go Bulls and Bucks) and football. I also love to travel and go hiking.

Kaitlyn Pankiewicz
Technology Support Associate

I love to learn new things, and technology has been an interest where I want to excel. While getting my Associates degree at College of Lake County, I was working at Allendale Association as a User Support Specialist. I learned a lot about customer service and troubleshooting there. I heard about an opening at Barrington 220 and feel that it would a great fit to learn and grow in the technology field.

When I am not at work, I spend time with my family, friends, and training Freya (my year-old Akita). To relax I love to play video games and draw.

*Editor's note: "Jailbreaking" is the process of removing limitations built into an operating system for the purpose of modifying a device’s features at the system level. Please do not attempt to jailbreak your district-owned devices.
