Welcome to Little Knights Preschool

 at St. Joseph Catholic School!

Called to Discipleship: Be Christ’s Light



I am excited to be a part of the St. Joseph Catholic School community as the new full day preschool teacher working with four year olds. I look forward to being a part of such a positive and caring academic community where body, mind and spirit are nurtured and developed.
Although I earned my education degree in Ohio, I have been a preschool teacher in Libertyville for the last 15 years. I love teaching preschool children and seeing the world through their eyes. I believe a warm and loving environment both encourages children to learn as well as helps them gain self-confidence. I am a strong believer in learning through play as well as hands on learning to help foster a child’s creativity and development. I look forward to a positive, loving, and wonderful year with your child!




Mittens warm the hands, friends warm the heart!  We are so happy to see our friends after our Christmas break!
After reading Sneezy the Snowman by Maureen Wright, we made our own melting snowman from shaving cream and glue. We also journaled why our snowman melted. 
We counted snowflakes 1-16 on mittens and recorded the correct color of the mitten with its matching number. 
Our sensory table was filled with artic animals in camouflage with snowballs and packing peanuts.  
We had a lively discussion today and brainstormed all the crops and animals that are grown and raised on farms. This led us into analyzing our information - most, least, greater and less.  
The question today in our OWL Lesson led to this graph. Have you ever been to a farm? We compared the numbers - most, least, greater than, less than and learned how tally marks are recorded. We also were introduced to the concepts of past, present and future with our calendar!
Happy Birthday Benjamin!  Thank you Mrs. Doty for reading Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. The children loved the backpack keychains too!
