My name is Bianca McLaren and I am proud to be the preschool teacher for the Crystal Lake Co-Op preschool. I have always had a love for young children, and feel very fortunate to work with such wonderful families. I have had previous jobs working with young children, but have found the co-op environment to be the most rewarding. It is nice to have time with each individual family to form relationships throughout the year.
Spending time with both the child and the parent together helps me gain insight to each child as an individual. I enjoy the curiosity and enthusiasm that preschool children bring to the classroom each day. I would not trade my job for any other!
In my time away from the classroom, I like to spend time with my husband Brandon and my son Connor, age 12. Our family likes to go boating, camping, play board games, and cheer for the Detroit Tigers!
