Ms. Alejandra
Assistant Teacher
I grew up in Hoopeston and graduated high school in 2016. I attended Roosevelt University and got to live and explore Chicago for 2 years but ultimately made the decision to transfer to Danville Area Community College (DACC) where I focused on early childhood education and culinary courses. While at DACC, I made new friends and strengthened friendships from high school, joined the pep band, started my first job at a center- where my passion to work with children grew, and earned 2 certificates and 1 associates degree.
