Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Jefferson Early Childhood Center! My name is Elizabeth Pasqualicchio, and I am proud to have been a teacher at Jefferon for the past 18 years. During this time, I have taught both Instructional and Blended Classrooms and love working with children! I have an amazing team that works collaboratively to ensure a positive learning experience for each child. I received my undergraduate degree from St. Mary's University of Minnesota in Winona, MN. I also have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Elmhurst College and a Reading and Literacy Master's Degree from Benedictine University. I also obtained my ESL Endorsement from University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL.
I love that my days are filled with three- and four-year olds whose smiles, inquisitive minds, kindness, and creativity never cease to amaze me. After school I get to go home to my amazing family: Patrick (husband of 19 years), Peyton (16-year-old daughter), Reagan (14-year-old daughter), Kennedy (12-year-old daughter) and Addison (10-year-old daughter). My children are Jefferson Alumni and also attend District 200 schools and my husband is a proud graduate of D200 Schools!
I so look forward to getting to know you and your child throughout the school year. Thank you for allowing me to influence your child during such a precious time in her/his life.
