Our four year old classroom assistant, Mrs. Lori McNamara, works hand in hand with Mrs. Peggy to provide students with a nurturing environment in which they can learn kindergarten readiness skills. Lori has been with the school for 18 years and is a vital part of the program. Her gentle, loving spirit adds so much to our school.
Mrs. Erin Egnatchik is our lead teacher for the three year old program. She has been with the Lake Shore Co-op family for the past six years, as a parent of two children who attended our program and as a school board member. She has a master's degree in childhood education from Canisius College and is thrilled to continue her role as lead teacher for our three year olds.
Our three year old classroom assistant is Mrs. Courtney Wentz. Mrs. Courtney became part of the LSCNS family several years ago as an involved parent when she enrolled her two children. Through active participation as a parent volunteer, she discovered her love for early childhood education and is excited to be with our three year old classes again this fall. Mrs. Courtney's nurturing personality and love for children make her a great addition to our preschool community!
Together, the teachers and assistants provide teamwork in the classroom which affords the best possible educational and nurturing environment that a preschooler can receive.
Our director, Hilary Hacic, has been with Lake Shore Cooperative Nursery School for six years. She previously worked as an Office Manager and Financial Secretary at Mapleton Public Schools in Denver, Colorado. She has two children that have graduated from LSCNS, a son currently enrolled in the three year old program and two more at home that will start Lake Shore Coop in a few years. She is delighted to be a part of the LSCNS family and is looking forward to the continued success of this outstanding program.
