Alicia’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy
“My favorite thing about working at Academy has been watching the kids that I had in Pre-K graduate! To see them grow from little four-year-olds to grown 18-year-olds has been so rewarding. I also love working where my own children attend school. Being able to see them each day makes me happy.”
“I am an only child.”
Favorite sports teams
“I LOVE the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears!”
