Preschool Staff & Teachers
Director of Preschool & Playschool
I have always had a deep love for the younger and shorter version of God’s children – babies through preschool-aged. I desire to share the wonder of God’s world and His love and grace by encouraging parents and teaching children for the past 40+ years. This passion is rooted in Deuteronomy 6: 4-9, so out of God’s love for me I desire to love and serve His children. I have three educational degrees that have brought great enrichment and insight to the preschool. I have three wonderful adult children (and their spouses!) and it is a blessing to be called “Nana” by seven beautiful grandchildren. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and friends – laughing and playing together.
Assistant Director & PreK Teacher
Suzi is our Assistant Director & one of our PreKindergarten Teachers – M/W/Th and Friday Enrichment
1-2-3 and A-B-C God loves you and God loves me! This about sums up who I am. My passion for loving and learning with children has been lifelong. I am a teacher, a mother and grandma of three. Family means everything to me. I have a heart especially for those with medical needs: “a square kid in the round world”, daughter is a breast cancer survivor, those in the military – Marines, the people that persevere through anything….and of course the “little things in life” like reading, a clean house, playing, soccer, baking cookies, laughing, rabbits and Diet Pepsi!
Administrative Assistant & Young 3s
I am a mom to four great kiddos (ages 7-14), who have all attended CCP preschool. Our family has been truly blessed by the outreach and community the preschool has provided through our years of attendance.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree from University of Northern Colorado. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my organizational gifts and administrative experience with the school. Serving children has been a great delight in my life.
Hebrews 13:21 is a great encouragement to me in this stage of life. I am learning to rely on the truth and knowledge that I have been ‘equipped in every good thing to do His will’ and that my attempts are ‘pleasing in His sight.’ I love a good adventure, sharing life with friends and family, serving others, and tackling a DIY home project.

I am an alumna of CCPP and in 2002 had the privilege and blessing to not only send my own daughter here but to also begin my career in Early Childhood as the Toddler teacher. My family and I moved to Arizona in 2005 where I finished my degree and after six hot years we returned back to beautiful Colorado! After moving back, I also returned as the Toddler teacher at CCPP until 2016 when a surprise addition to the family arrived, my son Dominic. Currently, my daughter is a Business/Finance major at the University of Arizona and my son is in the JrKindergarten program continuing the next generation at CCPP. I am also the co-owner/instructor of Academy of Art LLC, an art enrichment program that is proudly providing afterschool art classes here at the preschool!

I had the privilege of growing up in Greenwood Village and at CCPC. After attending Denver and Fuller Seminaries, I was on CCPC’s staff for three years. I love being back on staff as a Preschool 3’s Teacher. I have two sons and one daughter who attend Cherry Creek High School and CMS. Preschool is my favorite age because I get to watch these little ones learn so many new skills. I am excited for my seventh year teaching Preschool 3’s.
PreKindergarten | M/W/R/F
I’m looking forward to a year of learning, fun and adventure. I was born in Michigan and moved to Colorado with my husband in 1990. We have 3 adult children, ages 25, 22, and 20. I have an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood. I was a teacher at Southeast Christian Preschool for 3 years and starting my second year here at CCPC. Prior to this my focus was as a homeschool teacher to my children.
Ever since I came to Christ, I have loved to teach His word. It started with my children and since they’re all grown up it is my joy to teach your darling children about the love and faithfulness of our God and our goal to be like Jesus.
A few of my favorite things are serving at church, being with family and friends, and reading a good book when I’m not gardening. I can’t wait to meet you and start the school year.

I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology, with a focus on children, from Colorado State University. My husband Eric and I have two sons that both went through CCP Preschool & Playschool. We enjoy a lot of soccer, baseball, basketball, and football games! I am thankful for our CCP Preschool & Playschool families and feel blessed to be able to teach your children.
PreKindergarten | M/T/R & Friday
Teaching at CCP feels like coming home to me, as I attended preschool here many years ago, and then had the blessing of sending my two children to preschool here as well. My husband Brad and I have a 9 year old daughter and 7 year old son.
I received my degree from the University of Denver with a focus on elementary education. I taught first grade for 5 years after graduating, before leaving to stay home with my kids. I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to be back in the classroom doing what I love.
When I have free time I like to go running outside, do art projects with my kids, relax with a book on my porch, and I’m learning to play golf with my husband.

I was born in Sweden and moved to Colorado at the age of 23. My experience with children began with my mother’s in-home child care center. I have always loved children and got my Early Childhood degree in Sweden. I continue to take Early Childhood Education classes here to meet Colorado Standards. I am married and have two teenage boys with one in high school and the other in college. Our whole family loves to be outdoors – we are camping, boating, hiking, biking or skiing almost every weekend. I feel blessed to have found CCPC and love teaching here.

This will be my second year of teaching Young Three’s at CCPC, and I’m so very excited! I am currently the Assistant Director for Early Childhood at Cherry Creek Presbyterian.
JrKindergarten | M/T/W/R
Teaching God’s children about His unending love and the magnificence of the world that He created for us has been my joy for the last 24 years. My degree is in Chemical Engineering, which I used to drill oil wells in Colorado and Alaska prior to becoming a Christian preschool teacher. Having two wonderful children refocused my passion for teaching children about God’s love and the wonders of His science. My free time is spent with my son, daughter, and husband, teaching taekwondo, camping, fishing, and reading as many books as I can get my hands on.
JrKindergarten | M/T/W/R
This is my first year teaching at CCPC and I am very excited to be in the JrK class!
I was born in New Mexico but have moved around a bit in my adult years. Most recently I was a missionary in Eurasia for two years before moving to Colorado in 2019. I serve at my church teaching and caring for children and am currently working on a degree in Behavioral Health Science with a minor in Trauma which is why working with children is such a refreshing and joy-filled job. I enjoy going to coffee shops andeating good tacos. I also like reading, watching good movies, getting outside, connecting with people, crafts, and soccer. I am looking forward to this new school year and getting to know your children and families!
PreKindergarten | M/T/R/F
I received my bachelor’s degree with a major in Music and a minor in Bible. After college, I spent three years overseas as a missionary. I am a person of many and diverse interests, and one of them has always been young children. I love to interact with their distinct personalities and influence them for God. Originally from Connecticut, I have spent most of my adult life here in Colorado. I have a firefighter husband and three active boys who are in their teenage years. Some of my other interests include God’s family around the world (mission work), knitting, singing, and of course chocolate.

I am thrilled to be teaching here at CCP Preschool!! I received my Bachelor’s degree in Special Education at the University of Northern Colorado. I began my career by teaching incarcerated youth for many years, then I became the Director of Education at Sylvan Learning Center. I am a single parent with two delightful children, Cyrus (10) who loves baseball and Georgia (8) who loves art.They both attended CCP Preschool beginning in the toddler classroom. We love having adventures at our nearby creek in Parker. Luckily I don’t mind snakes, frogs and all of the critters my children end up collecting!! I cannot wait for all of the adventures that this year hold for us in the classroom. Thank you for sharing your children with Stacy and me.
