Ms. Lisa

Welcome to Early Childhood!!

Hi! My name is Ms. Lisa and I am an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher at the Wehde Early Childhood Center. This is my 16th year teaching in Crystal Lake at the Wehde Center. Prior to teaching in Crystal Lake, I taught 5 years in an Early Childhood Program in Glendale Heights and 1 year in Arlington Heights as an Inclusion Facilitator.  I received my bachelor's degree from Eastern Illinois University and have a master's degree in Early Childhood Leadership and Advocacy from National University. In addition to that, I have also received my ELL endorsement from National Louis University.   


Teaching Early Childhood has been a passion of mine.  I love connecting with the families and love the excitement of teaching all 3-5 year olds.  I take great pride in watching them grow and develop as they learn and explore with our Creative Curriculum.


Within my classroom, we work together as a class to learn collaboratively, to share and to take turns, and to develop our language skills.
