Mrs. Jeannie Cruz

Hello! My name is Jeannie Cruz. I love teaching! This is my fourth year working for Chicago Heights District 170, Early Childhood Program. This is my 16th year teaching in preschool. I taught in the Head Start Program, in Chicago for 12 years. I enjoy working with young children and watching them grow, learn, and develop skills throughout the school year.

Ms. Jerri Moret, Teacher Assistant, joins me in the classroom, working with the children.

I acquired my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Northeastern Illinois University. I acquired Bilingual and ESL endorsements from National Louis University.

When I am not at school, I love to spend time with my husband and children.
