Mrs. Brady

My name is Theresa Brady and I will be teaching Pre-k at the RCC with Marybeth Boyle.  I attended Benedictine University where I studied early childhood education.  After college I began teaching preschool for over ten years.  I then stayed home with my son when he entered kindergarten and stayed home till he was in 5th grade.  Four years ago I returned back to teaching preschool at the Naperville Park District.  This is my fourth year teaching at the Park District.  

I live in Naperville with my husband and son who is in 8th grade this year. We also have a crazy puppy named Stewart who keeps us on our toes!  I am very involved in my sons swim team and I am a Naperville swim conference representative.  I also became a swim official last year.  You can usually find me by the side of a pool cheering on my son!

I am so excited to be teaching your children this year!
