I would like to take this time to introduce myself.  My name is Maureen O’Reilly and I am thrilled to be the incoming Director of St. Jane Frances Preschool Program.  I have 27 years of experience in the field of Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Development.  I graduated from Loyola University Maryland with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and further obtained a Master of Education from Loyola, specializing in Early Childhood Curriculum and Instruction.  In addition, I completed a second graduate degree from the University of Maryland at Baltimore.  I earned a Master of Social Work at UMAB with a focus on children and families. I have had the pleasure of working for Catholic Charities Head Start of Baltimore City for the past 20 years. I am currently the Early Intervention Coordinator but have also served as an Education Coordinator and Volunteer Coordinator.  I have loved every minute of my time at Head Start.  Before my time serving the Head Start program, I was a Preschool and Elementary School Teacher.  I am eagerly anticipating playing an intricate part of your children’s future. I am looking forward to working with you as a partner on your child’s educational journey.  

As your child’s first teacher, it is essential to have parent involvement and input.  Trust is of the utmost importance to me and I have full conviction that we will develop this relationship together with an open door to communication.  I cannot wait to meet all your beautiful children and get started on this wonderful journey together. God Bless our St. Jane Frances Preschool Program!

Yours in Christ,

Maureen O’Reilly
