I thought it was time to introduce the wonderful and unique personalities that make up the teachers of Resurrection Preschool!
Our staff is committed to teaching because they value the wonder and excitement of young children and find working with and supporting our preschool parents extremely rewarding. Like parents, teachers wear many hats; during a typical day we might be a: Coach, Friend, Janitor, Mediator, Musician, Nurse, Role Model, and Story Teller. Like our students, we are excited to be here, because we are still learning too!
