Little Friends Preschool
This is my 13th year teaching at Little Friends. My husband John and I have been married for 24 years and are the proud parents of three adult sons. Amanda is a transplanted Southerner living in Iowa since 2000. I love music and really enjoy sharing music activities with our students.
Mrs. Karen has been a part of Little Friends since they opened in 2003. She and her husband Lynn live on the south side of Des Moines. They have four daughters: the two oldest are married and the other two are in college and high school.
This is my second year at Little Friends. My husband Joe and I have 3 elementary age daughters. I am originally from Minnesota and have moved to several places including Alaska for 6 years. My family and I have lived in Iowa since 2010. I love to knit and garden in my free time.
I am fairly certain that I have the best job on the planet. I don't mean easy - it's not an easy job. I don't mean that it's full of perks or comes with fame and fortune either. It's just great to be part of a community like Living Faith at all. But to lead, teach and work here? That is awesome.
Worshiping God through music has always been an important part of my life. It gives me great joy helping others do the same. I am blessed to work with so many caring and talented people at Living Faith, and my family and I love being a part of this community.
