Hello! I am feeling so blessed to be on the Northeast WI Lutheran School Association - Faith Christian Preschool (NEWLSA-FCP) team this school year! I come to FCP with the intent of facilitating a Christ-centered, warm, natural, creative, & nurturing place of exploration & learning for your children to excel in the development of their hearts, hands, and minds. Now, for a glimpse of my background: I hold both Bachelors and Master's degrees in Early Childhood Education. Prior to expending my Early Childhood teaching energy towards my son while staying at home with him for the past 5 years, I had worked in various EC settings. I first began my teaching career as an overseas missionary teacher in Taiwan. Upon return to the States, I have spent 10 of the last 15 years teaching Full-Day Kindergarten, University Lab-Preschool, serving as Adjunct Faculty (teaching teachers how to teach art), and most recently served as a preschool Assistant Director/ Program Manager. I pray many blessings over our 2023-2024 school year together!

I am so excited to get back into the preschool classroom! I look forward to spending time with younger children now that mine are mostly grown.  A little about me: I was raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  After graduation from Michigan Tech University, I worked for Underwriters Laboratories in Northbrook, IL as a scientist-technical writer.  Shortly after, I married my husband, Paul, and moved to Milwaukee here I worked at Marquette University as a library resource specialist.  I was a stay-at-home mom to my growing family until the kids were all in school.  I have been teaching children at church for 17 years and I have five years of classroom experience as both a full time (preschool ad first grade) and substitute teachers.  All three of my children were homeschooled for several years while we traveled the country in a motorhome.  With three teenagers now, I enjoy watching the kids' sports, travelling, outdoor recreation, church activities, Bible study, and spending time in the UP with family.  I have a cat, dog, two chickens, and love to experiment trying new recipes and making creations in my craft kitchen.
