Welcome to Preschool at St. Joseph Catholic School! 

I am so excited to be your child’s preschool teacher this year!

This is my fourth year at St. Joseph Catholic School and I am looking

forward to helping your child grow, and learn,

and have fun this year.

I have been a preschool teacher in Libertyville for the past 25 years,

and am passionate about helping young children learn.

I believe children learn best with hands-on experiences and

help facilitate their many different learning styles

in a kind and nurturing setting.

We will have an amazing year together meeting new friends, sharing new

discoveries, and learning new skills everyday.

Our instructional aide, Mrs.Tina Truskowski, has much experience in the classroom

after being a aide at St. Joseph Catholic School for 14 years!

Together, we help build positive relationships with children to help foster

growth and confidence in a caring classroom community.

We are both looking forward to sharing a wonderful year with your child.

  Jelly Bean Prayer

Red is for the blood He gave,

Green is for the grass He made.

Yellow is for the sun so bright,

Orange is for the edge of night.

Blue is for the sins we made,

White is for the grace He He gave,

Purple is the His hour of sorrow,

Pink is for our new tomorrow!

A bag full of jelly beans, 

So Colorful and sweet,

Is a prayer, is a promise…

Is such a special treat!
