Ms. Amanda - Director


I am Ms. Amanda – Director of CLP Bucktown! While I recently joined the Bucktown Family, I originally joined the CLP family in 2015.

Although born in Mexico, my family moved to Dallas shortly after where I grew up a Texan.  I visited Chicago in 8th grade and said “I’m going to move here one day.” Time went on and I attended Texas Tech University for 4 incredible years to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies. After graduation and a summer to remember – I packed up and moved to Wrigleyville knowing NO ONE. I accepted a position as a Lead Infant Teacher at CLP Lakeview, was promoted to Assistant Director, and accepted the Director role in early 2018! I am so fortunate to have a wonderful co-captain, Ms. Tasia, and our blessing to serve 30 beautiful, fabulous, dedicated, staff members – and about 100 little ones (and their families) each day! Although no day looks the same, our commitment remains on providing the best education for your little ones!

In my spare time I stroll the Logan Square Farmer’s Market every Sunday, buy concert tickets day of, scroll Instagram too much, and take red-eye flights for weekend trips across the US!
