Mrs. Marlene Byron

Hello and welcome!
I live with my husband in the western suburbs.  We have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren.  I enjoy spending time with my family and being part of our grandchildren's activities and adventures.
While raising a family, I worked full time and attended school part-time.  It was when I was attending Elmhurst college and completing clinical hours that I realized my passion for working with young children with special needs. I love the challenge and rewards of working with this group of children.  It is awesome to witness the growth in the children from the time they enter our program until the time they are ready to exit our program.  It is always bittersweet to see my students move on to kindergarten. I am sad to see them leave, but I am happy knowing I was a part of their foundational schooling attributing to their future success.
I have been at Jefferson Early Childhood Center since January 1999. I am honored to be a part of this nurturing and dedicated team of professionals.
