Our new preschool teacher is Mrs. Ashley Kusinski. She was also married this summer, and has been very busy getting ready for the year. She cannot wait to meet all of her new students and families.
Swartz has added a 2nd Grade teacher, due to the large enrollment this year. Her name is Mrs. Kim Ferraro and we are so glad to have her on our team. She comes to us with much local experience as she previously taught in, and currently lives in, Elmhurst.
