Mrs. Jill Jehs:

Jill Jehs

I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a B.S. in Elementary Education as well as my Masters of Education in Reading and Literacy, Reading Specialist from Benedictine University. I taught kindergarten and 1st grade in South Florida for 3 years before returning to Illinois to teach 1st grade in Lemont. It is my goal to create a community of little learners who are creative, kind, and curious. I hope to encourage their love of learning through exploration and play, songs and stories, and lots of imagination. My husband, 2 little boys and I live in Woodridge with our sweet old dog. I enjoy cooking, swimming, biking, and watching my boys play soccer.


Mrs. Tracey Witt:

I began working at our school in 2006. I have an elementary education certificate and a BA in social science from Dominican University. I was a first grade teacher, preschool coordinator, and worked for the archdiocese of Chicago, helping preschools get accreditation from NAEYC. My goal is to foster a lifelong love of learning among my students. I am married with 3 children, and enjoy reading and biking when I get the opportunity to do so.


Mrs. Nancy Staib:

My teaching degree is from Northeastern Illinois University, and I am certified K-9 in both Will and DuPage counties. I have taught kindergarten in Chicago, as well as been a teacher’s aide in school district 203. I believe it is equally important to support the social and emotional development of young children, as is the academic development. I started my career at the preschool in 2003, when I was first hired as an aide. I love to travel and read in my spare time. I am married, have 2 adult daughters, and live in Naperville with my husband.


Mrs. Tricia Wickham:

I graduated from the University of Saint Francis with a BA in Elementary Education and endorsements in Middle School Language Arts and Social Sciences. I earned an MA with a Reading Specialist Certificate, and earned my English Language Learners Endorsement from Benedictine University. I have taught preschoolers and full day kindergarteners at an elementary school in Warrenville. My goal is to celebrate each child in a nurturing environment that provides the opportunity for preschoolers to explore and learn through play. I live with my husband and young children in Lisle. I enjoy cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
