My husband’s name is Mike and we have 2 sons; Breck, who is in the 4-year-old classroom, and Dean, our newest little addition. We live in Louisville with our puppy, Scrappy Doo.

“Hello! I am the lead teacher in the toddler room. Working specifically with the young Toddlers is my day-to-day adventure! I have a son named Roman, who is also in the toddler room. Something you may not know about me: I absolutely adore manatees and hope someday to be able to swim with them. I have been a part of ICP since 2016, and I love watching the daily progression of my students. Thank you for allowing me to spend time with your children!”

"My name is Jill and I am currently the lead teacher in the three-year-old classroom. I have a daughter in elementary school, and began working at Interfaith Campus Preschool in 2014. I graduated from Youngstown State University in 2009 with a degree in Special Education. Previously I graduated from Kent State University with a degree in Psychology. After working in psychology for a year I discovered I could more effectively help children through education. I enjoy working with children and being an active part in their development. You may be surprised to know I love to read and travel, and my favorite trips were to Africa and Spain!
It is always an honor to learn and grow with our students, and I am looking forward to the coming year!"

“My name is Ms. Mandi and I am the lead teacher in the 4-year-old classroom. I graduated from Youngstown State University in 2012 with my Associates in Early Childhood PreKindergarten Education. I have been in the childcare profession since 2008, but have only been a part of the Campus Preschool family for a short time. I love ICP! My husband and I have just moved from Mahoning County to Summit County. It’s hard to believe we have lived in this area for about 2 years already. We have 2 fury children and 2 scaly children. We love our dogs and reptiles to pieces. We also enjoy kayaking, hiking, and camping. Fun fact… I have worked at the Akron Zoo and a Bird of Prey rehabilitation center! I was also blessed to travel to South Africa on a safari. It is my passion to help mold the children of our future into confident and successful preschoolers. As a teacher, I believe play is the most important way to build a child’s mind and heart.”
Lead – Pre-K (Head of Preschool and School Age)
“I have been teaching here since 1993 and have enjoyed every second of it! I live in Jackson Township with my husband Michael and our 5 children. I attended Walsh University where I majored in education, with a specialty as an Intervention Specialist and a Reading Endorsement. I enjoy running, reading, and spending time with my family. My Pre-K classroom is decorated with my favorite character, Dr. Seuss. My favorite color is purple and my favorite food is PB&J sandwiches. My lucky number is 5 and my favorite quote is “Only you can control your future” by Dr. Seuss. I attend River Tree Christian Church and assist in the Treehouse Kidz Classroom (K-2) on Sundays. I am passionate about teaching young children and see every child as a unique individual. I look forward to a fantastic school year!”
