Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to our 2023-2024 Pre-K class!! My name is Mrs. Naggles and I am thrilled to be a part of the PHSD 144 family as a preschool teacher!! I work alongside Ms. Jackson, the classroom paraprofessional. With a passion for nurturing young minds and fostering a love for learning, I bring 8 years of experience in early childhood education to our vibrant preschool program, all of which has been spent at our beloved Markham Park Elementary. My love for children and instruction has grown into a passion that has led me to further my career in education. I earned both my Associate's and Bachelor's degrees from the University of Phoenix and just recently graduated from Saint Xavier University with a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education.
In our classroom, creativity, exploration, and a warm, inclusive atmosphere are the cornerstones of our daily adventures. I believe that each child is a unique, budding learner, and I am committed to tailoring our activities to meet their individual needs, ensuring a joyful journey of discovery. Together with parents and guardians, I look forward to nurturing a strong foundation for your child's educational journey, one filled with wonder, laughter, and the magic of those "aha" moments. I cannot wait to embark on this exciting preschool adventure with your little ones!! Together we can look forward to growth, development, and getting to know one another.
