    Pre-Nursery Leader

    Emma Taylor

    I was born and raised in West Yorkshire, England, where I studied for two years to become a qualified Nursery Nurse. I then attended Edge Hill University near Liverpool, where I undertook my teaching degree. After graduating, I moved back to my hometown, where I began teaching in a local primary school. I had the pleasure of teaching there for three years in Early Years and KS1, where I gained many invaluable experiences. During my second year of teaching, I became the Science Subject Coordinator for Early Years and KS1.

    I was born in Mexico but raised in Chicago. One of the things I love about Chicago are summer nights. I enjoy long walks by the lake and family gatherings that involve scrumptious food!

    Early Childhood Teacher

    Sarah Lent

    My name is Sarah Lent, and although I’ve only lived in Chicago for the last year, my family roots are here. Not only are my family’s roots here in the Windy City, but my roots are also in education: My grandfather was a college professor, and my mother has taught preschool music for the last 30 years. Prior to relocating to Chicago, I spent the last decade working in education in Denver, Colorado. My degree is in music education, but with my additional certifications, I’ve also worked as a reading interventionist, a kindergarten teacher, and a preschool teacher.
