Ms. Brittany – Assistant Teacher Sunflowers
Hello Sprouts Families! My name is Brittany Bjerke and I’m new not only to Sprouts, but to Chicago as well. I have nothing but great things to say about this city!
I’m a graduate from Northern Arizona University, where I achieved my Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health. During the 5 years I was at NAU, I was a Lead Teacher for a preschool with children ranging from 12 months to 5 year olds. In addition, I’ve worked as a nanny numerous occasions and have had more babysitting jobs than I can count.
I am truly passionate about health and creating an environment for children to feel safe and welcomed. Watching children develop and grow is one of the most rewarding feelings and I am so excited to become a part of that here at Sprouts Academy.
Last year I spent 4 months traveling Western Europe, nannying for a family in Switzerland and volunteering on organic farms. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the great outdoors, spending time with family and friends, playing golf and cheering on the Denver Broncos (sorry Bear’s fans). 🙂
I can’t wait to meet all of you!
