Dear Walnut Ridge Family,


We would like to take this opportunity to introduce the newest addition to our preschool team, Ms. Kusma! She will be teaching our newest class beginning February 5.






Ms. Kusma has lived in Vernon throughout her life, attended Vernon Schools, and graduated from Vernon High School in 2010. She is an alumna of Immaculata University and holds degrees in both Early Childhood Education and Special Education. Ms. Kusma has worked for the Vernon Township School District in the preschool program as aide and earlier this year as a teacher in a leave-replacement circumstance. Parents may also recognize her from the local YMCA where she is a swim instructor and lifeguard.


She is looking forward to creating a classroom community where all students feel welcome, safe, and excited to learn!
