  • Hello everyone, my name is Ms. Emma! I am an early childhood special education teacher in room 203 alongside Ms. Jane and Ms. Julie. This is my fourth year teaching early childhood special education, and my first official year teaching at Beard (I was a student-teacher here 4 years ago and now I’m back as a teacher!). I have a bachelor’s degree in special education from Illinois State University and a master’s degree in early childhood education from the American College of Education. I am so excited to support and teach your child as they learn and grow this year! In my free time, I enjoy biking, hiking, and traveling to new places. My favorite part about teaching preschool is encouraging play and creating activities based on students’ interests. Please feel free to contact me through SeeSaw or email (ejkrissinger@cps.edu) if you have any questions for me or if you would like to share something with me!
