Shanna Kreutzer - 4K Preschool Aide
Hello, my name is Shanna Kreutzer and I am the Preschool aide for
the 4K class. I fell in love with the St. Luke’s Preschool program
when my eldest child attended the 3’s and 4K classes, and
immediately became involved by joining Lois Circle. I, then, decided
to earn my certification to be an early childhood teacher’s assistant
and am now in my 8th year on the St. Luke’s Preschool Staff. My
husband, Josh, and I grew up together here at St. Luke’s Church
and have been happily married for 15 years. We have 3 children,
Kaden, Kayla, and Kendra. I feel so blessed that God has placed
me in this program where I can share His love with your precious
children and be surrounded by their energy and joy!
