Who We Are
With a bachelor of arts degree in Christian music from Jackson College of Ministries and a master's degree in education from Milligan College, Lisa's love for moulding young minds began at an early age. Before moving to Charlottesville, she taught in the public school system for seven years and also worked as the principal of Christian Life Academy in Kingsport, TN.
We are certain that Lighthouse would not be the wonderful environment that it is without the influence of Ms. Edie. She served in the role of director for nearly twelve years and we are a better team because of her influence. Although now "officially" retired, we still get to see her from time to time, which is always great for the students because she's so much fun!
After spending a year working with special needs students in the Albemarle County Public Schools system, we were able to convince Ms. Tabby to return to Lighthouse in the spring of 2017. The excellence with which she oversees her classroom is exemplary; and, in our little world, she has become known as "The Potty Whisperer". Lighthouse Christian Preschool is blessed to have Ms. Tabby on our team!
Originally an employee of Northside Preschool before it was acquired in 2003, Ms. Dee is the senior member of our staff; and, after a brief hiatus, we are overjoyed that she has decided to return to our team. Bringing more than twenty years of practical knowledge and experience to Lighthouse Christian Preschool, Ms. Dee continues to be an integral part of our team.
She attacks her job with precision and excellence every day; and, her impact upon our administrative operations has been monumental. Although she is currently persuing her undergraduate degree in education and, therefore obligated to her studies, she still finds the time to give us a few days each week to lighten the load of paperwork in our administrative office.
Jungle Room Assistant
Ms. Tiffany has quickly become an invaluable member of our team. Opening the Jungle Room each day, she loves her job and her students with her whole heart. Any parent who has experienced the privilege of having Ms. Tiffany care for their children will echo our sentiments... she is awesome!
Ms. Jackie came to us in the latter part of 2016 and quickly established herself as a top-notch teacher. Her students love her. Their families love her. Her fellow employees love her. We know that you will love her too!
Since joining us in 2011, Ms. Kimmy has exceled with every age group we've assigned her. But, it seems as if she has found her niche with our younger three-year-olds class. Whether it's reading stories, teaching phonics, or completing a student's potty training, Ms. Kimmy embraces each new challenge with a genuine love for her job and her students.
Busy Bees Teacher
Another long-time employee of Lighthouse Christian Preschool, Ms. Sue is a very familiar face to the hundreds of families who have passed through our doors since 2003. Her caring personality and warm smile greet our early-morning arrivals as she opens the doors for business each morning. Her students love her and her fellow employees have grown to depend upon her.
K-4 Stars Teacher
Ms. Mahogany continues to be one of the reasons why Lighthouse Christian Preschool's graduates consistently excel upon their entry into Kindergarten. Her pupils have gone on to test out in the top reading and math groups, as well as, advanced placement throughout their elementary school experience!
Whenever any of our staff members fall ill, or just need a day, Ms. Khristie is a trusted life-line on whom to call. She always shows up to work with a smile and gives her all to care for the students in her charge on that day. Having been trained on the policies and procedures of each classroom, Ms. Khristie is always at the ready for an opportunity to step in and shine!
