Laurie Nissen, Recreation Supervisor

Laurie Nissen – Recreation Supervisor

I am pleased to say that I have been part of the Alsip Park District since March, 1997. I began as the Preschool Coordinator/Teacher. My two sons attended the Preschool here, and it was surreal to be on the “other side” once being a parent and now the teacher. It did help me understand and know what parents were expecting. In 2002 I took on the position as Recreation Supervisor. I take pride in offering programs that make the Alsip Park District a great place for the residents of Alsip and non-residents to come and enjoy
