Mrs. Michelle Reilly
Director and Teacher

In her 12th year at Crescenta-Cañada Cooperative Nursery School, Michelle Reilly teaches the MWF Darling Duckling class as well as the T/TH Busy Bear class. In addition to her teaching duties, Michelle Reilly is the Director. Mrs. Michelle has a BA in Education from San Diego State University. Her Early Childhood Education units were received from UCLA. Mrs. Michelle began her teaching career as a Parent Education Instructor at Glendale Community College. She has taught classes from infants to entering kindergarten for over 14 years and finds that working with the parents alongside the children is so rewarding.


Mrs. Michelle’s first introduction to this wonderful school was as a parent in 2001. She joined the Crescenta-Cañada Cooperative Nursery School with her daughter Megan in the Darling Duckling Class. Megan moved on to the Busy Bear Class and her younger daughter, Maddy joined the Darling Ducklings. Mrs. Michelle was fortunate enough to be an active member of CCNS for 4 years holding several committee jobs as well as many Board Positions. Being a former coop parent and now a teacher helps her to understand the positive experiences families have when joining a cooperative preschool.


Michelle Reilly and her family live in La Cañada. Mrs. Michelle and her husband, Mike, enjoy spending time with their busy daughters. Megan and Maddy are both in college now.


Parent consultation with Mrs. Michelle can be arranged upon request at any time during the school year. Regularly scheduled parent-teacher conferences are held in the Spring, for both classes.
