Quote from Marina’s supervisor:
“Miss Marina is a favorite among the parents.  She loves talking with them about anything!  I have been telling her that when she decides to retire from the Huntley Park District, she would be the perfect Walmart Greeter!  Marina remembers everyone.  Teaching is a love for Marina not just a job.  When it comes to art and music, Marina knows the drill.  Lots of open-ended art and plenty of music!  Marina is always willing to lend a hand no matter what the task.  She’ always’ must be doing something!  You will never need to worry because Marina worries enough for all of us.  I guess I could Sum it up by saying she is one of the kindest people I know I am privileged to know Marina not only as a fellow worker but as a friend. I wish Marina many more years of happiness at Seedlings Preschool.” 
– Connie Lombard, Preschool Director
