Dani Allen


Inserted Image Media Outreach and Learning Labs Coordinator

Welcome to North Mac!  My name is Dani Allen.  I was born and raised on a little farm just outside of Auburn.  I married my husband, a former Virden Bulldog, in 2004.  We have two wonderful kids that keep us on our toes!  I started subbing within the North Mac District in 2010, and then accepted the full-time position as the Media Specialist of our South Campus in 2014.  Before that, I was the Technology Coordinator and teacher at St. Agnes Elementary from 2012-2014.  I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Communications and then went back for my teaching license in 2008 and completed my Master's in Library Science in 2017 from the University of Central Missouri.  In 2021, I accepted a new position in the district as the Media Outreach and Learning Labs Coordinator.  I am excited to help North Mac grow even more into an amazing district recognized by all!

Debbie Butler



My family has now been in the Virden Girard area for 6 generations and all attended either Virden or Girard School Districts. I am married to Bob Butler, and we have 3 children, Josh, Jarrod, and Jordan, 3 grandchildren, Cali, Daytn, and Carson, and 2 Himalayan cats, Tink and Willow. I began with the former Girard School District in August 1996 as a cook.  In August 1998 I accepted the position of administrative assistant in the elementary/middle school office.  When North Mac reconfigured to the attendance center model I was transferred to the PK-2 building in Virden. I returned to the Intermediate office in August 2018. I have been blessed to work with great teachers and administrators over the years, as well as met many students and parents that I still keep in touch with.  Several of my current students are children of some of my former students, so I have come full circle.  My husband and I enjoy camping when time permits, working in our yard, flea markets, and spending time with our family.
