Meet The Teachers


Ms. Veronica


Ms. Veronica

Hello! My name is Ms. Veronica, and I currently attend school at College of Dupage, planning to transfer to Elmhurst University to receive my bachelors in early childhood education. My passion for teaching began when I worked at the Clarendon Hills Park District as a camp counselor. I also have experience babysitting and it’s also something I enjoy. I believe if the students have a good connection with their teacher they will succeed and have the ability to learn! It is my responsibility as a teacher to make sure the students feel comfortable, have fun, and feel safe in their learning environment.

Welcome Little Learners’ 4’s class! My name is Miss Lauren, and I am so excited to be teaching your little ones this year! I know this will be an awesome year and I can’t wait to see your child succeed! My goal is to create a fun, positive, and creative space where your child feels welcome, safe, and eager to learn! I am new to teaching at Little Learner’s Preschool, but I am no stranger to this wonderful program! I have two boys, ages 10 and 6 . Like you, I signed my youngest up at Little Learner’s preschool and so glad I did! I can truly say that this learning program is the perfect atmosphere that is focused on creativity, exploration, and all the fundamentals that will help them prepare and succeed in Kindergarten! We are going to have so much fun this year together!

Miss Becky

Hello, my name is Miss Becky.  I am very excited to be joining the Little Learners team this year.  This will be my third year teaching preK. Previously I ran a home daycare and taught Kindergarten through Third Grade in Joliet.  I took eight years off of teaching to be home with my kids.  I have four children, ages 8, 10, 13, and 16.  When I’m not at home I’m cheering them on by the pool, track, and soccer fields.  I love cheering kids on in classroom as well.  It brings me so much joy to see them grow throughout the year.  I look forward to a fun, exciting year with all of my students.
