Ms. Tracey

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia. I am in the process of studying for my Reading Certificate for children Pre- K through 6th grade.

I was an elementary education teacher for ten years. I have also been an Early Childhood teacher for 4 and 5 year olds and a kindergarten teacher. I started working at Kids Junction in June 2008. I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was eight years old. I love working with kids and seeing them learn and grow.

I was born and raised in Australia and moved to Wisconsin in 2002. My husband and I have been married since 2003. I enjoy reading, crochet, photography and bird watching. We have an Australian Terrier called Cobber who loves to sit outside when it’s snowing.

Ms. McKenna

I graduated in may 2016 from North Central university in Minneapolis with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and minor in Biblical Studies. I am licensed to teach all subjects K-6 in the state of MN, and working toward the same for the state of Wisconsin.

Around 12 & 13 years old, I started babysitting and working in children’s church. While in college, I continued on working in Sunday School, but also started working at a center called MetroKids in downtown Minneapolis, where I came to love early childhood education.

In my free time, I love to paint, work on DIY projects, read, be outside and spend time with my family and friends.
