ABOUT THE TEACHER
3-Year-Old Preschool Teacher
Alicia graduated from the College of Lake County with a certificate for Certified Nursing Assistant in 2006. After several years of being a CNA, she decided to change her career path to pursue another passion of hers: teaching. Alicia has worked at a couple of childcare centers and has experience working with children from birth to 12 years. Throughout her time in childcare, she was the main teacher for the older 2s and young 3s and occasionally taught in the preschool class. Alicia also worked as the Assistant Preschool Teacher at Faith Lutheran School in Antioch, IL. During this period, she earned three teaching-related certificates and is currently enrolled at the College of Lake County, pursuing her Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education.
Alicia and her husband, Jeff, live with their two sons in Round Lake Beach, IL. Alicia enjoys spending time with her family outside by walking various forest preserves, taking their dog to the dog park, bike riding, and being with extended family.
"I feel very blessed and excited to serve as the 3 year old teacher at St. John Lutheran School, not only to encourage growth in young children's minds intellectually, but also to learn and grow in their faith in Christ."
