My name is Mari-Ann Smith and I am one of the Preschool Teacher’s Aides. My background is slightly different than most of the teachers here at St.Ldislaus School. I graduated from Northwestern Business College in Chicago and have worked in the fast paced hospitality industry for more than twenty years.
I have two girls, ages nine and eleven, that have attended Lad’s since preschool and we just love it! This is my fourth year working with the Archdiocese, my first year was with F.S.P lunch program that you maybe familiar with, and I have also worked with the first through eighth grade children on Fridays for the after school program.
The last three years I feel especially blessed that God guided me to a new career, working with the preschool children. I absolutely love working with these angels and it brings me such great joy. Their success, love of faith and learning is my goal.
