Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Barbara Rada
My name is Barbara Rada, the children call me "Ms. Barb."
I have been a pre-k teacher in District 162 for 20 years and love working with young children. I taught at Illinois School for many years, and transferred to Richton Square when it was reopened as a Pre-k and Kindergarten center.
I am the mother of two grown sons, Ian and Kyle. Ian is a graduate of Northern Illinois University, and is living in Minneapolis. He is married and the father of my two adorable grandchildren, Scarlett and Owen. Kyle is a graduate of DePaul University, and is living in Chicago. I am very proud of both of them and love spending time with them whenever possible!
I love reading, art and yoga.
