"I have been teaching for four years, three as a lead teacher. This is my second year at SVUMC Preschool as a teacher. I was a student here many years ago, starting as a Turtle and graduating from the Mice class with Mrs. Beasley.

A few fun facts about me: I collect mason jars; I have a cat who was born with extra toes; I love to play softball and go to CrossFit; I love to travel!"

"I have been teaching at Spring Valley United Methodist Church Preschool for three years. At my spare time, I like to be crafty. My favorite thing to do is seasonal and sports wreaths. I also like to be involved in my children's activities and enjoy spending time with family and friends."

Jamie Leneau

"I have been teaching for 17 years. The last ten years, I taught at a private Christian school in Southern California. This is my first year teaching at SVUMC Preschool. I love working here and really appreciate how welcoming everyone has been this year!

Fun fact about me: I have danced since I was three-years-old. I also taught dance to ages 2 through adult. That's why my sons have such amazing dance moves!"
