Carrie graduated from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN with a bachelor of science in education degree. For 3 years she taught a 1st/2nd combined class in Jenera, OH. After getting married, Carrie continued her time in the classroom in Milwaukee, WI where she taught a 4 year old preschool class in the mornings and a 3rd/4th grade combination class in the afternoons. Carrie and her husband John moved to Idaho in 1994.
For several years she left the formal classrooms to make her home a place of learning for her 3 young children (those “young” children are now grown adults!) Carrie returned to the classrooms of NW Ada county in 1998 as a substitute teacher.
Because of her extensive experience in early childhood education, Carrie was asked to open and serve as our head teacher here at Cross of Christ Preschool. We have been blessed to have her as our teacher from 2005 to the present.
Carrie enjoys learning all she can to help her teach her students. She has taken different courses and seminars over the years: Handwriting Without Tears, classes from Martin Luther College and is now working with the Lee Pesky learning center with their Idaho Early Learning Project.
