The Glenview New Church Schools Jr Preschool Teacher, Izabella Gawel

Izabella Gawel

Jr preschool teacher

BA in Early Childhood Education at Ashford University

I taught preschool and kindergarten for 8+ years while raising my own I first joined GNCS in March of 2020 as a long-term sub for the junior preschool classroom. I am re-joining the GNCS family this 2021/2022 school year with seven years of classroom experience with ages 0-5, as well as high school students. My previous classroom experiences with preschoolers specifically include special education, dual language learners, and English language learners. As a preschool teacher, I firmly believe in play-based learning as well as natural experiences. Being a multilingual speaker myself, I am a big advocate for language development of all forms through a variety of approaches within the classroom. I am also a big believer in the importance of literacy in all aspects of education. I look forward to meeting all of the GNCS families and embarking on this endeavor alongside such a wonderful community!
