Mary Weber

I have been teaching at Rainbow 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 Rainbow 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 Rainbow 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 Rainbow Preschool because Rainbow Preschool is filled with amazing children and families!

Rhonda Bjerke
I have been working as a Rainbow teaching assistant for 9 years. My favorite thing about working at Rainbow 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.

Welcome to Waconia Wildcat Preschool of St. Bonifacius!   I look forward to the many adventures we will have together!   I expect you will see a huge amount of growth as your child prepares for kindergarten. I have been a teacher for the past 22 years.  My teaching experiences range from preschool all the way through college.  As a licensed elementary educator and reading specialist, I am fascinated by the emergent and early reader and thoroughly enjoy encouraging early reading skills. I currently live in Waconia with my husband Mike, my three children who attend Waconia Public Schools, and my little white dog named Charlie.  When I am not teaching, I love going for walks with my dog, photography and spending time with my family.

Hello from Waconia Wildcat Preschool in St. Boni! I am so excited to explore each day with your child as we learn from each other and prepare for kindergarten! For 20 years I have enjoyed assisting in various educational settings from preschool up through middle school. My degree specializes in Educational Studies and Psychology, with my focus on comprehension and creativity. Every child absorbs knowledge differently and finding the best fit encourages proper growth and excitement with everything they do! I currently live in Mayer with my husband Tyler, our four children who attend Waconia Public Schools and our two kitties, Lizzie and Diesel. When I am not teaching, I enjoy creating with various forms of art, baking/cooking and spending time with my family.
