Preschool Assistant Teacher; RAP Teacher
I began my time at Resurrection Preschool in January 2010 and I really enjoy it. I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology from National Louis University. I originally started as a Theatre major at Barat College in Lake Forest but decided that being a starving artist was not for me. Little did I know that all those theatre classes would come in handy when singing circle time songs and playing with small children in the dramatic play area. During college I worked with many Park Districts in the north suburbs with their school age kids at summer camp and year round programs. It was at the Deerfield Park District when they asked for some extra hands as an assistant teacher in a three year old preschool classroom that I found my passion for working in early childhood education.
Since then I have spent the last eight years as a preschool teacher, preschool camp assistant director, and special needs aide for children in the preschool classroom. I love working with young children and being able to have such a positive impact in their lives while helping to build a strong foundation for them to grow!
I am a local, born and raised in the Chicago area and currently reside in Lincoln Park. I love the theatre, summer, sun - and let's not forget I am a local and therefore being a Cubs fan is in my blood.
