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.
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.
I am Minnesota born and raised. I wholeheartedly believe in the wonder of preschool. Children enter our classrooms ready to learn, explore, and play. As a teacher, I take great joy in being part of the initial steps of a student's educational path. I believe in creating a space in which children can express themselves and grow socially and emotionally. Outside of preschool, I spend my time with family and friends, enjoying time outdoors, and traveling.
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.
I have worked for Waconia schools for over 20 years. I live in Waconia with my husband Doug. We have 4 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, and 4 grandchildren. I love teaching young children and have a special interest in nature play, gardening and STEM activities. I love reading stories, one of my favorite books is the story of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff because I love to make those voices. Wildcat Preschool is a terrific place to grow and learn!
I am blessed to be living here in this wonderful community my whole life. I have enjoyed working with this amazing program since 2002. It is fun to be a part of the children’s growth and development from year to year. I am married and we have two sons. When I am not at school I am usually outside exploring nature.
