I am so excited to be your child's teacher! This will be my first year teaching and I cannot wait to get started! I have 4 kids and love spending time with them, especially outdoors! I also love animals!  Disney is one of my favorite things ever! Reading and music fill all of my free time outside of my kids.  I survive off of caffeine and love coffee!

Hi! I'm so excited to be your child's teacher this year! We are going to have so much fun learning together!  This is my first year teaching preschool at Living Lord, but continuing my 8th year in education.  My son, Ryder, attended pre-k at Living Lord and my daughter, Abby, will be starting her first year of preschool here.  I have been married to my husband, Jake, for 16 years who I met at Mizzou.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family at the the lake & beach, riding bikes and doing just about anything outdoors.

 I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year!  I can't wait to see how much our class learns and grows through all the amazing things we do!  I spent 7 years teaching 4th grade, and now I am very blessed to be teaching at Living Lord Preschool for my second year.  Two of my children have been a part of this wonderful learning community.  My oldest son, Kaiden, is in 4th grade.  My daughter, Audrey, is in 1st grade.  My second son, Carson, is in kindergarten.  My youngest son, Rylan, will turn one in late November.  We recently moved to the St. Louis area from Seattle, WA.  It's been a amazing journey for us!  For fun, we love to go to the zoo, spend time at one of our local parks, or even just hang out with our neighbors in front of a bonfire!

Our Facility and Classrooms

Living Lord's 12,000 square foot facility allows for great  flexibility in usage of its open spaces and meeting rooms.  The preschool uses the sanctuary for weekly chapel, utilizes the Fellowship Room for whole school events such as our Fall Festival, Sensory Fair, and birthday party for Jesus and uses the upstairs gathering space for large gross motor activities when the weather does not allow us to go outside.

Our three classrooms are light-filled and colorful and designed to promote wonder, curiosity and cognitive stimulation through  a wide variety of sensory and learning centers, as well as introduction to SMARTboards.
