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!




They were very careful about putting the dirt and the seeds in their cups. We can’t wait to see what everyone looks like with grass hair.
We continued use talking about flowers and plants.  The boys and girls the. Planted grass seeds in a cup with the picture on it.  They will water their cups each day and hopefully the grass will grow and they will have grass hair.
Morning Media with Mrs Hoglund.  She read us a book about friendship.  The boys and girls were able to check out books.
A few weeks ago, Zoe and Elizabeth our 8th grade friends, came down and interviewed the preschoolers.  They asked them what they would do if they had 1 million dollars.  The girls wrote an article for their St Joseph Newspaper.  Today they delivered  copy and we read the article!
Th boys and girls glued the down the carrots.  We learned that carrots grow under the dirt.   They added dirt by using brown paint.
We read a favorite book, The Carrot Seed.  The boys and girls then cut out some carrots glued them on paper and added the leaves.   
We met with our 4th grade Prayer Buddies this morning.  They each were given a bag with a cross and colored beads.  They strung the beads and cross on a colored pipe cleaner.  
This morning we talked about plants and what they need.  We played a rhyming  game to guess  the parts of a plant and what they need to grow.
We started the afternoon by doing a Rhyming Write the room.   The boys and girls had to find the rhyming picture on their board and write the word from the picture card.   Following this we finished learning about Xx.
Go Gray in May!  This morning we talked to the boys and girls about what things they can do to honor Bennett’s sister Leah.  The boys and girls each told us ways they can spread kindness in her honor.
This morning the boys and girls did a very difficult Write the Room.  They went around the room foundmuppermcase letters on the wall.  They then had to identify the picture on their board that began with that letter sound.   This was challenging, but they did a great job!
