About the Principal
Hi, my name is Ashley Ern and I am the Principal here at Chesterbrook Academy. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Family and Child Studies with an emphasis in Child Development from Northern Illinois University. I spent 7 years teaching multiple age groups in different settings including schools, head starts and in-home daycares. In 2012, I became a Center Supervisor for Two Rivers Head Start Agency in Aurora. Through the challenges of running a center, inspiring teachers and providing quality care for children, I found school administration was where I wanted to be. I enjoyed learning about head start policies, programs offered to low income families and encouraging parent education, however, I wanted to be closer to my family and home. In September 2014, I had the opportunity to join the Chesterbrook family. I believe early childhood is a crucial time period for the development of a well-rounded person. Finding solutions to make early childhood programs more effective is where I see myself making a difference. I am excited to see how my education, experience and ambition can improve Chesterbrook Academy of Bartlett.
