Hi, I’m Hannah and this will be my 5th year at Little Lambs! I grew up right here in DeKalb and went to Illinois State where I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I also hold an Illinois teaching license for grades K-9. This will be my 9th year teaching! I’ve worked with ages 6 weeks to 4th grade in that time, but teaching preschool is my favorite! Preschool sets the foundation for a child’s educational experience, and I strive to make sure it’s positive and enjoyable. I love getting to know each child as an individual, and working to nurture their unique talents and interests. My best teaching tools are a sense of humor, patience, and my snack baggie of pretzels! My favorite things about teaching are my relationships with the students and parents, the laughs we have every day, and watching how much they grow and change.
When I’m not at work I like reading, cooking, and spoiling my niece Stella (10), nephew Baby A (2), and my rescue dog Coozie (11). My students will get to know all about Coozie and her crazy antics! Some of my favorite things are cold weather, cheese fries, Christmas, and the Green Bay Packers. I’m looking forward to a great year!
