Jessie has been the director of our preschool since 2018, when she graduated from Martin Luther College in Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. She also teaches in our Sunday school and accompanies worship on the organ.
“I grew up in Green Lake, WI and enjoy working with our preschool families and teaching our little ones all about Jesus. For many of them, they have very little prior knowledge about Jesus, so to be the first one to share that message with them is such a blessing.
I enjoy spending time outdoors, whether that be hiking, biking, camping, etc. I love horses and anything to do with them. I will be getting married in June 2022 to my fiancé Nathan who is currently stationed here at Nellis Air Force Base.

How Do We Teach?
Our teaching methods are best described as “Active Learning.” Your child will be participating in hands-on, exploratory activities. They will play, experiment, converse, and invent. They will learn to problem solve both in social and concrete situations. They will begin to think out of the box. Our teachers are there to build their ideas. With an eye on the required standards of our local school district, we work to prepare our “graduates” for success in Kindergarten. We are committed to communicating regularly with parents for the benefit of the children.
They will learn what Jesus has done for them. We are a Christ-centered preschool. This means that your child will hear Bible stories and experience Christ’s love each day. They will hear wonderful, positive messages of God’s love and forgiveness.
We are happy and excited to serve you and your family. We hope to hear from you soon!
