Preschool Assistant - 2 year olds
I grew up in the small East Tennessee town of Caryville. My formal education includes a BS degree in Business Administration/Accounting and a MS degree in Early Childhood Education and Family. I worked most of my career as a financial administrator for legal services organizations and retired in September 2018. We have lived in Omaha – my husband’s hometown - since my husband retired in 2013.
My experience with young children includes working as a volunteer at my children’s pre-school, elementary schools and middle school, and as a reading tutor for kindergarten and first-grade students. Since joining St. Andrew’s in early 2015, I have served as a VBS craft team member, an Upward basketball/cheerleading coach and Upward game-day supervisor. It has been such a blessing to also serve as a co-teacher in Church School, working with second-graders, three-year olds, and in the nursery. I have always loved caring for and teaching children, especially young children. The opportunity to work as a Preschool Assistant in the 2s classroom is a dream come true for me!
I have two adult sons and four granddaughters living in Tennessee. I enjoy travelling to see my Tennessee family whenever I can. I also have three younger children - a son who is a sophomore in high school and (boy/girl) twins entering eighth grade, so our family stays very busy!
