Meet Amanda

I raised two amazing sons in a stable and loving home. I am happily married for 22 years. My oldest son is a sophomore in college where he is studying Kinesiology and playing basketball. My younger son is a junior in high school. He is a member of the National Honor Society and plays volleyball on a club team and at his school. I am very proud of my family. I was extremely blessed to be a stay at home mom for 12 years. I took my responsibilities as a stay at home mom very seriously. I volunteered regularly at my boys’ school, coached sport teams, ran Boy Scouts, and even started and After School Craft Club that 50 children attended weekly. We were members of the zoo, museums, took music lessons, and attended mommy & me classes. Exploring the outdoors with my children was my very favorite thing to Read more do! Everyday was a new adventure! Upon returning to the workforce, I took a teacher assistant position in Pre-K with the Hinsdale School District where I worked for two years. I went on to be a teacher at Farm and Nature Preschool in Palos Hills - this was my dream job and the facility where my own children went to preschool many years ago. As I gained more experience and my sons private education costs were becoming more expensive, I sought a higher paying position. I am currently working with Chicago Public Schools as a Teacher Assistant at a Early Childhood Center for children with special needs. I have been at this school for 3.5 years. I am passionate about working with children. I love my job!
