Beth Straka - Preschool Teacher
Hello, my name is Beth Straka and I teach preschool at Cambridge Lakes Preschool. My passion for creating confident, lifelong learners led me to a career in teaching. I graduated from Roosevelt University with a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education (special education approval).
I have been part of the preschool team since June 2007. I have taught in both the full day preschool and in the half day Preschool for All programs. As a member of the preschool team, I have completed about 130 hours of High/Scope training.
Before joining the Cambridge Lakes Preschool team, I worked with young children ranging in age from six weeks to ten years old. Working with these children, I learned that the optimal learning setting for young children is safe, comfortable, stable, and exciting. Children should look forward to new and exciting hands-on activities everyday.
I am married and have a daughter named Brooke. We have lived in the Cambridge Lakes Community since the summer of 2007.
I know that you and your family play an important role in your child’s learning, so I look forward to working with you to meet your child’s needs.
