BUSY BEES (Twos / Threes)



I attended Harold Washington College, where I got my associate’s degree. I later got my CDA. I choose to work in early childhood education because I love helping young children explore what they can do as they grow. I also love how excited young children are when they discover new things about themselves and the world. In my spare time, I like to read, spend time with my family and cat, and play video games.

My name is Rebbie and I am currently attending Prairie State College seeking an early childhood education degree. I've been working with children since I was a teenager and have loved every second of it! My favorite part about working with children is their kindness and loving nature. I hope to be a great addition to Little Inspirations!

Hello, my name is Jessica Jenkins. I have an 8 year old daughter named Khloe. I was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago ! I began my teaching career in 2016. Beginning as a floater, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with infants, toddlers, two’s, preschool, and school aged children. I then became lead teacher in different environments with toddlers, two’s and preschoolers. I received my Associates in Applied Sciences for Early Childhood Education from Harold Washington College. During the pandemic, I returned to school and will be obtaining my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education from National Louis University in Fall 2023.


Being able to work with children has always been a dream of mine. I started at a young age babysitting children in my family as well as my neighborhood. Not only am I able to educate children, I am able to learn from them as well.  I believe that our children are our future. By providing them with meaningful experiences , quality education, and a positive nurturing environment, I make a difference in their lives. 

In my free time I love to bake, cook, read, spend time with my loved ones, and listen to music. I am thrilled to join the Little Inspirations Team!



My name is LaMia Deane. Three years ago, I moved to Chicago on my own from Baltimore, Maryland. After a while, I just decided I wanted to see more than just my everyday hometown. I've been a preschool teacher for four years now and I'm amazed at how much creativity I can bring to the kids. Meanwhile, I'm getting an associate's degree in preschool education, and will keep my education going. My passion for baking has led me to start my own little bakery business on the side and hope to extend as much as being a teacher.

My name is Laronda Clayton. I chose to teach in early childhood for many reasons. I have taught in infant, toddler and preschool classes throughout my experience in ECE and have learned a lot. Early childhood is the foundation of a child’s educational journey. I like the idea of instilling basic knowledge in children that will stay with them throughout their life. With that being said, I’ve obtained my associates degree in 2017 and I’ll have my bachelor’s degree in elementary education next year from Chicago State University.

I’m very family oriented. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I’m excited to be here and look forward to meeting you all.

Hi, I’m Janya Sanders, a new addition to the Little Inspirations Team. At a young age, I’ve always played school with my siblings and the teacher would be my designated role. I knew, since then, I had the utmost desire to be the best, friendly, well educated, fun and safe teacher. I’ve been working in daycare facilities since the age of 16 and just grew more fond of working with kids. In the near future, I will gain my degree and/or CDA so I can become a Certified Teacher and have my own little people to teach one day!



Hello!  I am happily married to my husband of thirty-eight years, Odell, and we have two children named Eileen and Marcus.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Chicago State University, and attended Rosary College for my Montessori Diploma for ages 3-5. I chose to work with younger children because of the unique ways they have of expressing their wants and needs as they explore and learn. I appreciate the communication I have with the parents, peers and administration as we become involved in each child's development. I am very passionate about continuing to learn - just as the children are! I am happy to help fulfill the Vision and Mission of Little Inspirations.
