We are thrilled to introduce you to our new Preschool Director, Kathryn Singer! Kathryn comes to us from St. Mary’s Child Center in Indianapolis and brings nine years of experience working in charter, private, and faith-based organizations. She graduated with honors from Butler University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten endorsement. She also has had extensive training in Mild Intervention in Special Education, as well as Spanish.
As the board and interview committee spoke with Kathryn during the interview process, we were particularly impressed with her calm demeanor and thoughtfulness in considering responses to our questions about the Director role, the teachers, and, of course, the children. She believes it is a calling to be in a Christian-based early childhood center, especially since she grew up in a Lutheran church, and is eager to continue using and growing her experience and skills in a leadership role. She has many ideas for the preschool, and we are hopeful for the support and implementation of these opportunities to further carry out the mission of the preschool in our community.
Please join us in welcoming Kathryn as our new Preschool Director! She has already begun working in her new role and participating in Summer camp and professional development with the teachers. She is on site Tuesdays and Thursdays during Summer camp hours if you wish to stop by and meet her. She will also be attending church services here on a regular basis.
