Hi! I’m Beth Wennerstrom and I am the 3-year-old preschool teacher! I have many years of teaching experience in both public and private schools and in ages ranging from preschool through 8th grade. However, teaching the youngest learners is my passion! I grew up in Schaumburg where I attended St. Hubert’s School so I know the importance and pride of a Catholic School education. I am excited to share God’s love with the children of St. John’s Preschool.
I received my elementary education degree from Valparaiso University (Go Crusaders!) where I also played soccer for the University. I received my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Northeastern Illinois University.
I live in Carol Stream with my husband, Rob, and 3 beautiful daughters, Abigail , Caitlin, and Libby. We are very proud that our daughters also attend St. John School. In addition, we are St. John’s parishioners, so you will probably see us here on Sunday morning!
When I’m not doing my favorite things with my family, which includes vacationing, taking family trips to fun places like the zoo, or cheering on our little athletes on the soccer field, you might find me on the running path. I love running and have run 8 marathons including the Boston Marathon twice. The best part is my running partner is my dad!
I am so excited to be part of the St. John’s family and am honored that I will be a part of your child’s and your family’s education!
