Our Teachers

Little Chicks Learning Academy loves its teachers!  They are our greatest resource.  We are so grateful to have the staff we do.  LCLA is a University of Wisconsin-Madison affiliated Early Childhood Learning Center.  This means that our staff is afforded excellent professional development and continuing education opportunities.  Students from UW Madison often participate in our classrooms for learning classroom credit and student intern hours.  These students provide excellent classroom support and keep our centers connected to the latest and greatest education the UW has to offer.

Our staff all have, at minimum, an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.  The vast majority of our staff hold Bachelor’s Degrees in Education or a related field.  Multiple staff members hold Master’s degrees.  Through a partnership with TEACH, it is our goal to have every one of our staff go on to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in education.  We feel strongly about encouraging our staff to go on to achieve all their educational and professional goals.

Hi, my name is KC. I have been working at LCLA since March of 2015. I graduated from UW-Madison in December 2014 with a Human Development and Family Studies degree and a certificate in Gender and Women Studies. I was born in Chicago, IL and grew up in Kenosha, WI. I moved to the Madison area for undergrad in 2011. I believe that exploration and discovery is the key to learning. I am passionate about giving children the tools and support they need to learn new, fascinating things. I absolutely enjoy working with kids and look forward to seeing their growth each and every day.
