Dayna Traeger – Assistant Director
Dayna Traeger – B.A. Sociology – Assistant Director
I am very honored and excited to accept the position as Assistant Director at Sprouts Academy. In my five years as a Lead Teacher in the Bean Sprout classroom, I have worked with many children, and later their younger siblings, and seen the school evolve and grow, and now look forward to contributing to this wonderful community in a new capacity.
I grew up just north of Chicago in Deerfield, and received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from The University of Colorado. While attending school, I volunteered regularly at several non-profit daycare centers and elementary schools as a physical fitness volunteer and homework club helper. My passion for working with children led to a position at the YWCA, providing emergency childcare, social services, and resources to families throughout Colorado. Upon returning to Chicago, I was very fortunate to find Sprouts Academy, an organization whose philosophy about teaching lifelong health and a sense of social responsibility to children aligned with my personal values, and couldn’t be more excited to begin the next chapter of my career here!
