Ms. Mandy Aubry received a Bachelor's degree in speech-language pathology from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois in 1998. She received a Master's degree in speech-language pathology from St. Xavier University in Chicago in 2000 and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Aurora University.
Ms. Aubry was the speech-language pathologist for District 20's preschool programs for 16 years before she moved to the Administrator at the Early Childhood Center 4 years ago. She has spent her entire career in District 20 preschool programs and enjoys all of the relationships that she has made with the students and their families.
Watching preschool-aged children learn, grow, and experience things for the first time is something that Ms. Aubry will always enjoy. She feels that it is a wonderful age of exploration and learning through play. Knowing that preschool is usually a child's first school experience, and often the first time a child is away from his or her parents, Ms. Aubry and her staff work very hard to make this a positive experience for every child and their family as they lay the groundwork for the children's academic careers. She is excited every day she comes to school and sees what new things and in what new ways our students learn and grow.
