Welcome to Zion Lutheran Preschool. Whether you are new to Zion this year, or you were with us in the spring of 2020 when COVID 19 first rocked our world, we appreciate you choosing to trust us with your child during such an unprecedented time.
My name is Alisa and I'm the director at Zion Lutheran Preschool. This is my 8th year at Zion. Prior to my time at Zion, I was a public school teacher. I taught special education for 19 years, at varying grade levels from preschool through 12th grade. I have a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Masters Degree in Literacy.
I am married to my best friend, Steve, and we have two children, Abbi and Will. We have a small zoo at our home, starting with our sweet Callie dog. We also have an axolotl, Annie, who lives at Zion part-time, a turtle, Raphael, and a Sulcata tortoise named Dozer who loves to visit. We have a collection of frogs and toads too!
I love anything and everything outdoors and all things living - the more crittery they are the better! Our family has 80+ acres of land in Kentucky and we spend as much time 'off the grid' on our property as our busy lives allow. It's a blessing to spend my days in Ohio at Zion. I can't wait to see our students again soon!
Ms. Kerry has been with Zion Lutheran Preschool for 17 years. She is the proud mom of two grown children, Jake and Taylor. She is also the proud mama of three rescue kitties, Tiggy, Gia, and Finn.
Ms. Kerry is a dedicated Cleveland Browns fan and the one you will find listening to Christmas music in June. She loves all things silly, fun and kind.
Hello! I am Ms. Maryke and I am one of the Zion Lutheran Preschool teachers. I have been a licensed teacher for 10 years and this is my fifth year teaching at Zion.
I am married to Dan and we have two little girls, Genevieve and Coralynn. I am a Buckeye fan, enjoy the outdoors, exercising, and leopard print is a favorite of mine.
I can’t wait to meet you and be part of your preschool experience. We are all on this ride together and we will have lots of fun!
