DAWNA BOWERS - TEACHER
Hi everyone! My Name is Dawna Bowers. I chose to be a ECE educator because for as long as I can remember, every job that I have held has been centered around children. I am particularly passionate about working with children because every day is a new journey. Children are a burst of energy ready to explore and are giant sponges ready to gain information. They are such a joy to be around. I also have a toddler of my own and I enjoy watching him learn and explore new things. I appreciate being at Little Inspirations because it is so close knit and family oriented. I have a strong belief that it takes a village to raise a child and I am glad to become a part of this village. I am very excited to dive into all the art projects and new adventures that I will get to be a part of, but best of all, to share my love for the Sound of Music soundtrack with everyone!
ANTOINETTE CHAMBERS - ASSISTANT TEACHER
Hello All! My name is Antoinette Chambers. Some of you may remember me from previously working at Little Inspirations a couple years ago. Now I am back! A little about me, I received my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood at Kennedy King College back in 2020. I took a small educational break, but have now gone back to school. I am studying at Chicago State University where I will be getting my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Working with children and seeing them thrive is something I take very seriously. A child’s early years are the most important, and I promise to cherish those moments with your children.

REBEKAH GREEN - TEACHER
I have a B.S, in Early Childhood with a concentration in Child and Family Services. I love teaching in early childhood because I love being able to see the children’s growth and knowing I had something to do with it. My favorite area of play would be in the dramatic play area where children are able to show what they see and learn at home and are able to bring it into the classroom. Something fun about myself is that I love to laugh and have fun.
DONESHIA POLK - ASSISTANT TEACHER
Hello, my name is Doneshia. I was born and raised here in Chicago. I’ve been in childcare for about 8 years, working between two facilities teaching children ages 6 weeks up to 12 years old. My love for children came about when I was 12 years old. I always loved teaching and educating little ones, so my siblings and I would play school and of course I would be the teacher. My love for children is unconditional with no amount to measure that love. Watching them learn and grow amazes me everyday. I recently became a new mom in February 2021, I’ve loved every minute of it so far and look forward to my days ahead. I am excited to join the Little Inspirations family and look forward to being a part of your child’s lives. I have first handedly seen the love, care, and positive energy the team brings to all the children. I love to laugh, dance, and be a mom. I look forward to growing with Little Inspirations and helping the children grow.
