Mrs. Alicia Kadlitz

Welcome to my personal page! I have been teaching at  West Leyden since 2004, in the Family and Consumer Science Department. I currently teach Child Development, Preschool, and Culinary Basics.  I graduated from Illinois State University in 2004 with a major in Family and Consumer Science Education. I received my Master's Degree from Saint Xavier Univerity in 2009. I  am the sponsor of the FCCLA club that is run through the FCS department. 

I live in Schaumburg with my husband and 4 children. As a family, if we are not busy at home, you can find us enjoying the slow-paced "Lake Life"  at my parent's cottage in Wisconsin. I love to boat,  entertain, party plan, cook and most of all spend time with family and friends.  I believe teaching is a calling and there is nothing I am more passionate about or love more than working with our students at Leyden. I strive to teach our students the life skills necessary to lead better lives, build strong families,  be work/career ready, and be contributing members of the community.
