My name is Marilyn Sublette, and I’ll be teaching the three year old class at St. John’s. Three year olds are such an adorable age. The children are excited to learn and they soak up everything we do from shapes and colors to songs and Bible verses. As we are learning our ABC’s, numbers, Bible stories, and a multitude of other things, we try to make it fun through acting the parts of stories, dressing up, visualizing, hearing the lessons read aloud, and much more. 

I have my Bachelor of Science and my Masters in Education. I have taught almost every age from pre-school through fifth grade. Each child and each age has been delightfully different and amazing. This will be my fourth year to teach at St. John’s and I am thrilled about the new year.

Hi my name is Madi Tucker. I am honored to be a member of the St. John’s Lutheran School staff starting year number two. I received my Associate of Arts in Teaching Degree from MACC in 2016. Upon graduation, I started my journey at St. John’s in the 5 year old room. This year however, I will be teaching in the 2 year old room. I am blessed that God had provided this new opportunity in my life and look forward to helping our young people grow in a faith based educational system. I am looking forward to a fun, memorable year. God Bless.

Cindy Harrison-4 Year Olds-Lions 

My name is Cindy Harrison. I am a mother of four wonderful children, of those twins with autism. My twins are the reason I believe that I received my calling to work with children. Working with my boys on reaching their goals in life started me thinking about how I can help other young children. I have been with St. John’s Lutheran School for eight years. I have been blessed through these eight years working with the preschoolers. It gives me so much joy teaching them and filling their sponge like brains with knowledge of numbers, shapes, matching, the word of God, and so much more! This year I am so excited to be our four year old part time Lions teacher. I have so many great and wonderful things planned for our class!

My name is Shantel Hinton. I have been blessed to be a part of St. John’s Lutheran family, teaching four year olds for fifteen years. I received my degree in early childhood from MACC. It gives me so much joy guiding and teaching young children. I am very excited to see what the Lord has planned for our classroom. Together, as a team, I know we can help our children grow spiritually, academically, and socially. I look forward to meeting all of our new St. John’s families. God bless!

My name is Beth Griffith. I am the High 5’s Pre-K teacher. We will have lots of successes this year together. I will encourage your child to explore and learn many new things through books, singing, writing, painting, and physical activities. Learning to create; be a risk-taker (to try new things); be able to resolve conflicts peacefully with others; be proud of one’s accomplishments and be respectful will help prepare your child for kindergarten. I look forward to meeting with you and working together for your child.
