Amy Lawler, M.Ed, MBA
Becky Prevost, M.Ed.
School Programs Chair
As the daughter of a conscientious objector and someone who snuck to Mississippi to teach black people to read so they could register to vote, Becky grew up with a passion for making the world better for everyone. She grew up with parents who instilled the need to be an agent of change. From the time she could talk, Becky wanted to be a teacher and quickly found her place in inner-city Boston middle schools, teaching English, Special Education, English as a Second Language, and Dance. Upon having her own children and relocating to the Fox Valley, she decided to stay home with her boys. She and her husband wanted to show their children the importance of helping others. A mutual friend connected Becky with 3:11 Project, and she was named the School Liason. This has allowed her to be involved with her young boys in an organization that truly wants the best for everyone, while continuing her love of teaching.
Candice Tinson, M.Ed.
Safe Families Program Chair
Candice became a self proclaimed “stay-at-home-mom-on-the-go” after ending her middle school teaching career six years ago to raise her two small children. She found her niche and her tribe through volunteering for a variety of community organizations as well as orchestrating events for groups of foreign exchange students visiting the Chicagoland area. Though her “classroom” may look very different these days, she still believes in the importance of making the world a better place one child at a time.
