Teaching is an occupation that often “runs in the family.” In Miss Sarah’s case, growing up with a father who was a teacher helped her choose the profession. “My dad was respected by colleagues and students alike. He instilled in me a love of learning and acceptance of new cultures.”
Sarah co-teaches our 3- and 4-year-olds, and has been with us since 2014. She earned her degree in education from UW-La Crosse and has lived/taught in a wide range of interesting places. Sarah is fluent in Spanish, having taught the language for many years in La Crosse and Onalaska, and she implements that in her teaching here. Sarah also creates wonderful dramatic play-themed areas for her children.
Jeonghee (“Miss Kim”) co-teaches in the 2-3 year old classroom. Her background includes a Bachelor of Arts degree with an English Education minor. She has also completed coursework specialized for early childhood education. Jeonghee taught English to preschoolers in Korea and first joined us as a substitute teacher, working with all ages.
Jeonghee is especially happy when she is drawing and coloring with children. She says, “Everyone has their own unique drawing style and their choice of color is amazing. They always inspire me.” Jeonghee’s endless supply of patience and understanding makes her a perfect fit for our busy class of three and four year olds!
