Lead Teacher
Ms. Brooke
My name is Miss Brooke. I am from Lincoln and moved to Bloomington/Normal in 2004. I graduated from ISU with a Bachelors of Science in Family and Consumer Science with an emphasis in Nutrition in Dietetics in 2008. I decided working with children was my passion and where I belonged so I began that venture in 2009. I got married August 2010 to my husband Dusty. We are the parents of three children, Liam, Atley and Olivia. I've been a lead teacher in the 2's Monkey Room, the 3's Gator Room and now the Panther Room since the center opened in October 2010. I love working for Little Jewels!
