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.
Cindy Knight PreKindergarten Teacher – M/T/Th and PreK/JrK Friday Enrichment
I was born in Texas and am a graduate of the University of Kansas with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I began at CCP as the director of the Parents’ Day Out Program in 1986. I am blessed to share God’s love with preschoolers for the past 24 years at CCP. Jeff and I have two grown daughters who live locally. I help my siblings care for aging parents and am thankful to live in Colorado and celebrate its beauty.
Cynthia VanValkenburg JrKindergarten Teacher – M/T/W/Th
I received my bachelor’s degree in Music performance from Northwestern College in Iowa. After I married my husband, I received my teaching endorsement in elementary education at Metropolitan State University. I taught third grade for six years. While my daughter was in Playschool and Preschool, I taught in the Playschool Toddler room and loved it! After all of the great years teaching in Toddler class, I taught PreKindergarten, and have been teaching in the JrKindergarten class for three years. I love children and teaching them! So it’s no surprise that God has led me to this wonderful program and the opportunity to be His disciple with preschool children. When I am not being a mom, volunteering for my daughter’s school or at church, I sing, garden and read every book I can.
Debbie Reynolds JrKindergarten Teacher – M/T/W/Th
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.
Jessica Basile Playschool Teacher – T Young 3’s
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 Preschool 3’s 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!
Ginger Davis Pre3s Teacher – Preschool 3’s M,W and 3’s T,Th and Friday Enrichment
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.
Shari Norblom, Playschool, Young 3s – M/T/Fri
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.
Martha Wersch PreKindergarten Teacher – M/T/Th
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.
Susanne Jedholt Playschool Teacher – M/T/F Toddlers
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.
