Learn by doing
From Mrs. Di Cecco
This is my tenth year as a teacher with St. Thomas the Apostle School. My first three years here were teaching our preschoolers and I am very excited to be teaching kindergarten for a seventh year! I have been in Early Childhood Education for 13 years, coming to teaching young children after 20 years in consulting. I received my Master’s of Teaching in Elementary Education from North Park University.
I am a long-time resident of Crystal Lake with my husband, children, and our family dog. My oldest daughter is finishing her doctorate at UNC Chapel Hill, my son graduated from the University of Iowa and is working locally, and our younger daughter is starting at San Diego State University this fall. St. Thomas the Apostle is our home parish.
I know first-hand how quickly these school years pass and intend to help create an environment for your child to learn and grow. I strive to create a welcoming classroom providing hands-on activities to spark creativity and curiosity, centered on our amazing God. I look forward to getting to know each child as the unique gift God has created and to partnering with you in your child’s education.
