Favorite Quote: “Henry David Thoreau said: ” If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. ” At PND, we help our students build those foundations.


Mrs. Svoboda, a native of Libertyville, IL, was inspired by some amazing high school teachers at Libertyville High School. At PND, Mrs. Svoboda loves working with the students because they always teach her something new; the faculty provides support and care for one another. She also grows in her faith through quiet reflection at the beginning and end of her day, asking God for guidance to help her become a better teacher and person.
