Beth Strandlund

Early Childhood Teacher

I was born and raised in a small town located in the industrial corner of Northwest Indiana. Growing up along the Lake Michigan lakefront, my upbringing was shaped by a loving family and a fun, light-hearted neighborhood rooted in Polish, Hungarian, and Slovakian traditions.

I returned to my hometown after college and spent years as an elementary teacher working in a traditional school setting. Eager for new life experiences, I decided to move to Chicago. With this leap into the city I opened my world to new opportunities, new friendships, and a fresh perspective of myself and my life. Chicago has been home for me for over 15 years. Each day this vibrant city surprises me with its beauty and its goal oriented spirit. It continues to offer a space for me to be inspired and grow as a person.

Learning should be personalized to each student. It is important to recognize that who you are, your strengths, your goals, your talents and skills is your superpower as a learner. How you see the world, how you connect with the world, how you learn in the world is uniquely yours. And as an educator, I believe every student's learning experience flourishes when it resonates with them.
