Carissa Klein

Carissa Klein

School Director

Hello, my name is Carissa Klein and I am happily married to my husband Tim. We have 2 cats, a bunny, and planning to have children of our own.

I have been in early childhood education for 10 years. I graduated from National Louis University with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Practice and Administration. I’m passionate about creating an positive, communicative environment where every student, staff member, and family member feel valued and supported. I spent my first 6 years in ECE teaching children of all ages from infants to preschool, as well as school-aged children. Working with these children and watching them grow has been the most rewarding part of my job.  I am looking very forward to my future work at Cadence Academy Preschool. I am blessed to be the leader of this amazing school.

Hi my name is Andrea Medina. I attended Northeastern Illinois University and majored in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in childcare for 20 years and here at Cadence Academy for 13 of those years. For the majority of my time here at Cadence I was a Pre-K teacher and then moved over to Infants for a fun change. I am married and have four children of my own as well as two dogs who keep me quite busy at home as well. Teaching has been a wonderful and rewarding experience that I look forward to being a part of every day!

I am so happy I chose this school for my daughter. Even though she is an infant, I know she is being taken care of greatly. The teachers are amazing and willing to work with you and also give you advice to keep your child on track! They have great communication through their reports online and in person. I feel very safe with this school as they have proper procedures in place for everything. I have a lot of confidence in the administration as well. They greet us everyday and make us feel at home (as their brand promise). Ms Jamie Ms Kristin and Ms Cassandra are awesome and they are willing to talk with you and help you out if they can. There have been times that I see them go out of their way to help any parent or child in need. Cadence Academy Preschool 959 is Amazing! I would refer them to anyone!
