Mrs. Mandy Zambrano
Hello families and students, my name is Mrs. Mandy Zambrano and I will be your preschool teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This is my eleventh year teaching preschool in the district. I have a bilingual assistant, Mrs. Alicia Diaz, who has been working with me in the past, and this will be our seventh year together. I grew up in Mokena, and always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I went to Eastern Illinois University for my undergraduate studies majoring in both Special Education and Early Childhood Education with a concentration in Early Childhood Special Education, and I loved my time there and made a lot of lifelong friends. I continued my education at Concordia University recieving my ELL endorsement, and now I am continuing my studies online (just like our friends) at National Louis University this year, pursing my masters degree in Educational Leadership. When I am not working I enjoy my free time with my husband (Max), our young son (Max III), and our dog (Jackson) working around our house, exercising, and in the garden, which keeps us pretty busy!
