Linzi Traini – Director

I want to share how excited I am to be part of your school family. I know you have received an email with a little information about me, but I wanted to take the time to share some more about myself. I am from the east coast (Philadelphia) and moved here with my husband and our dog, Bella, 6 years ago. Since then, we now have two beautiful daughters: Willow (5 years old) and Ofelia (16 months old). They keep me busy! Willow started kindergarten this year and that has been an exciting transition for our family. We live in the South Loop neighborhood, not too far from Sprouts! My educational background involves a B.S. in Early Childhood Education with a focus in child and families, and culture and a minor in psychology from Wheelock College in Boston. I have a M.S. in Child and Adolescent Development and a M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis from Capella University. I am also currently working towards my PhD in Child and Adolescent Development through Capella University. I bring with me a wealth of knowledge through experience in a variety of settings from working in early intervention, as a mental health therapist for children with autism, a nanny, a teacher (ages birth through 6 years), an assistant director, and as a play-based therapist.
