Dr. Essinger worked as an early childhood special education teacher within Paris School District 95 from 1974 to 2008. She previously worked as an elementary school teacher within the Havana School District in Illinois from 1973 to 1974, and was a psychology resident at Frey Psychology Center, Inc. She became interested in special education after spending a summer at a day camp for children with mental disabilities between her junior and senior year of high school.

Dr. Essinger earned a Bachelor of Science in education from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois in 1973, and later earned a Master of Science in education from Indiana State University in 1981, where she continued her postgraduate work. Years later, she went on to receive a Doctor of Philosophy in psychology from Capella University in 2008. She is also certified in learning disabilities, elementary education, and education of mentally handicapped students with an early childhood endorsement. In addition, she has been a member of several organizations including the American Psychological Association, the National Education Association, the Illinois Division for Early Childhood, the Council for Exceptional Children, and many others.
