Meet the teachers…


Welcome to Red Shed Preschool! We would like to start off by saying that we have been lifelong friends. It has always been our dream to open a preschool together.  Here is a little bit about us…



My name is Mandy Becker and I am so excited and honored to be a part of your child’s preschool experience.  I was born and raised in Roscoe, IL.  I attended Prairie Hill Elementary and Hononegah High School.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart Bryan for 15 years and have 3 wonderful children.  We live in Caledonia, IL across from our family farm.  We enjoy spending time outside by our ponds…fishing, swimming and having family cookouts.  We are a very active family and enjoy many sports & activities like baseball, basketball, snowmobiling, four wheeling, tractor pulling and racing.  In my free time I enjoy running, scrapbooking and traveling. Teaching is my passion!


I graduated from Rockford College with my degree in Elementary Education in 1999. I taught preschool for 2 years in Minnesota & Virginia and LOVED every minute of it! When we moved back to our hometown of Roscoe, I began teaching 3rd grade at North Boone Elementary. Then I made the decision to stay home with our 3 children until they began school full time.  I was able to continue my love for teaching during that time by tutoring students K-8. I am now the owner/director/teacher of my lifelong dream….Red Shed Preschool!!


I look forward to the upcoming years and will put my heart and soul into this preschool to make it the BEST first school experience for your children. Thank you for choosing us at Red Shed Preschool!

My name is Amy Mylin and I was also born and raised in Roscoe. I graduated from Prairie Hill Elementary School and Hononegah High School. I married my best friend from grade school and we have 3 children. We are very fortunate to have our extended family living in the area so we spend a lot of our time with them. Our family enjoys being outdoors boating, camping and swimming in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. When I get a few minutes to myself, I enjoy curling up with a good book, digital scrapbooking and catching up with my girlfriends and sisters.


I received my Elementary Education degree in 1999 at the University of Iowa after student teaching in Scotland. I then taught third grade at Whitman Post Elementary School in Rockton for 4 years before I had our son. I have continued to tutor children in grades kindergarten through eighth for the last eight years while I have been a stay at home mom. I have also kept busy during my time at home with my children by managing the swim lesson program at the Ledges Pool and founding the charity, Fighting Alport Syndrome. I decided to go back to teaching in 2011 and have been very fortunate to work as a Reading Specialist at Prairie Hill School. I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to help your child discover the love of learning through exploration and creativity.


It is a dream come true to be able to work with your preschool children and be one of the first stepping stones in your child’s educational path.  Their honesty and natural excitement for learning inspires me everyday. Thank you for choosing Red Shed preschool and trusting us with your most precious gift.
