Meet Mrs. Dunne :)

I am so excited to be the Preschool 3's teacher at St. Francis!  I grew up in Palatine, and continue to live there with my husband and two children. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Elementary Education and Concordia University with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as training in Early Childhood Education.  I taught Preschool and Kindergarten in Des Plaines before taking time to stay at home with my children.  I found that you could take the teacher out of the school, but you couldn't take the school out of the teacher! I continued to plan lessons and fun activities not only for my own children, but for friends and neighbors as well. I am so excited to be back in the classroom at St. Francis de Sales for my seventh year, where I get to do what I love, creating new and exciting curriculum to make learning fun for my preschoolers. :)
