Daryl-Lynn Johnson is the interim director of Unity Preschool after teaching in the 4/5 classroom for nearly 10 years. She started teaching at Unity in the fall of 2009 after working at the Jewish Community Center Preschool in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Daryl-Lynn especially enjoys taking the 4/5 students on adventures to the sculpture park, the library, the post office, “L” rides and Whole Foods to name a few. She also enjoys science Lunch Bunch, during which the children can find several exciting uses for vinegar, baking soda, and alka seltzer. Daryl-Lynn was raised in Connecticut, but has lived in the Bay Area, the mountains outside of San Diego, and Harrisburg before settling in Evanston with her husband and two children (both Unity alums!).
Favorite Children’s Book: Arrow to the Sun. Her parents read it to her and she read it to her children when they were babies. They loved looking at the vibrant illustrations.
