Samantha Cooper-Tuttle


Hello! I have been the Director of CrossWays Preschool and Celebration! Childcare since 2020. I have been with Holy Cross and our programs, however, since I was 18 years old! In high school, I was going to go to college to become a Kindergarten teacher, but then decided that I wanted my career to be in Early Childhood Education and changed my major. The early years are so important when it comes to learning and growing. Creating meaningful, positive relationships with each of our students is a rewarding and beneficial experience for both myself and our students. When I am not at work, I am spending time with my husband and six children. We like to watch movies together, play games, and enjoy the outdoors. Our family has three dogs and a bearded dragon. Reading outside on a warm, summer day is one of my favorite things to do, especially if it is at the beach!

Roxanne (Rocky) Lamont

Assistant Director

Hi! I have been working in the Early Childhood field for many years. I have been an Assistant Director with Celebration! Childcare for over 10 years. I live in Gurnee with my husband and puppy, Sage. My three children are fully grown, living on their own, and starting their own careers. In my free time, I like to travel, exercise, and eat Chicago pizza! I enjoy having the pleasure of getting to know all the students, watching them grow, and seeing their smiling faces every day!

Tania Zombolo

Assistant Director

Hello! I have been with Celebration! Childcare and CrossWays Preschool for over 10 years. Throughout my time here, I have worn many hats. I have been an Assistant Teacher, a Lead Teacher, and now an Assistant Director. I love my job! Having the opportunity to be a positive influence in children's lives makes me so happy. I currently reside in Green Oaks with my husband and three children. On days off, you can either find me at the softball field watching one of my daughters play or making ornaments for my small business!
