Carrie graduated from Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1986. For 3 years she taught a 1st/2nd grade combination class in Jenera, Ohio.
After getting married, Carrie continued her time in the classroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where she taught a 4 year-old preschool class in the mornings and a 3rd/4th grade combination class in the afternoons. Carrie and 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 in our Meridian School District.
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.
