Rita Brezina

Downers Grove, IL

I absolutely love working with young children! I have been a Substitute Teacher in Downers Grove District 58, and I’ve been a long time volunteer at our elementary school as well. My husband and I, and our 4 children own Fair Game (both locations – in Downers Grove and La Grange) and I developed and have run all of our after school enrichment programming. My 3 younger children enrolled in the EEE classes and I was very impressed with the progress they all made. I’m thrilled to be on the teaching end of the program now!

Welcome Families!  I am so excited you are interested in enriching your learner's education - you came to the right place!  After all, what could be more important than the development of those you love most?  


As a lifelong learner myself, I believe in continuous growth.  My Bachelor’s Degree is in Child Development and Family Studies from Purdue University and I have a Master’s in Special Education from Lewis University.  I spent eleven years as a Learning Specialist and the last five as an Instructional Coach in Center Cass School District #66. Additionally, I hold an Early Childhood Education Endorsement and am a Certified Gifted Education Teacher through the State of Illinois.


There's nothing better than watching the spark ignite in a young learner.  I am incredibly passionate about talent development and personalized learning.  I offer complex tasks for all with scaffolding to support learners achieve their goals.  One of the reasons I love the EEE curriculum so much is that it makes learning FUN which is so important in education.  Thank you again for your interest and I look forward to working with you and your little one!

Nathalie Hudyana

Mount Pleasant WA, Australia

Hi, my name is Nathalie Hudyana. I have a Bachelor Degree of Finance and Marketing, and Master of Accounting from Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Western Australia. Besides being in the workforce for the past 12 years in both supply chain industry and building industry, teaching has been my passion that I promised myself to someday pursue in life. My experience in teaching is in the music subjects such as teaching choir in the Catholic church youth community as well as piano teaching on a casual basis. My 4 years old daughter and 10 months old son have helped me believe that early childhood education is very important in shaping our kids’ development to have a positive impact in later life. EEE program includes over 500 creative lessons. I’m sure you will be amazed how kids could reach their potential when given the opportunity.
