Mary Weber

I have been teaching at Waconia Wildcat Preschool 15+ years. Preschool is a fun place to play, read stories, learn about ourselves and others, be a great friend, dance and sing, and learn to love school. I live in St. Bonifacius with my family. I have two daughters, one son, and my husband is a teacher as well. We like to play games together, go camping, play outdoors, read books, and travel across the United States on our summer vacation.

Trisha Molinari
I live in St. Bonifacius with my family. I have three boys, which means we spend a lot of time at the hockey arena or baseball fields. I've been Ms. Mary's assistant for over 10 years. I am fortunate to have met many wonderful families in our community through Waconia Wildcat Preschool. The best part of my job is watching my preschool friends grow and make new friends.

Sara Linsley
My name is Sara Linsley. I love being a Waconia Wildcat Preschool teacher because every day I get to be surrounded by smiling children who enjoy coming to school excited to learn and play. I live in Victoria with my husband and four children. When I am not at school, I enjoy watching hockey (and playing occasionally), hiking around the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and trying to bake the perfect cupcake. I look forward to many more years of teaching at Waconia Wildcat Preschool because Rainbow Preschool is filled with amazing children and families!

Rhonda Bjerke
I have been working as a Waconia Wildcat teaching assistant for 9 years. My favorite thing about working at Waconia Wildcat Preschool is getting to know the families and watching the children grow academically and socially. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family. I am married and have five girls, who keep me very busy.
