Jennifer- Director

Hello! I feel incredibly blessed being able to serve as the director of the Sonshine Patch Preschool. I love connecting and building relationships with my students and parents! 

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from Central Michigan University.


I have four amazing, grown daughters. When I'm not at the preschool, I'm attending local community events or enjoying the great Colorado outdoors!


Hi everyone! Being a teacher has always been a dream of mine. I have been working with children since I was 12. 


I received my BA at Azusa Pacific University in California where I met and married my husband, Dan. We now have two wonderful grown children and four grandchildren. 

I've taught kindergarten at a Christian school in Sedona, Arizona, worked as a Children's Ministry Coordinator, substituted, taught classes at the University of Phoenix, and worked as a swim instructor. Teaching JK here at the Sonshine Patch is a complete joy to me, incorporating my many years of teaching experience with fresh new ideas is such a fun challenge!

Shelia - Teacher

Hi! I'm a Texas native, raised in Gunnison, Co. I have two daughters and one son ages 7-20.


​I graduated with a teaching certificate in Early Childhood Education from Mesa State in Grand Junction, Co. I've also enjoyed teaching at Sunday school, and substituted previously at a preschool in Delta, Co


I absolutely love to teach and work with young children. It is so exciting to watch them developmentally grow throughout the school year!  

Assistant Teacher

Hi, I'm Chloe. I have a passion for teaching, which was cultivated through years of helping my peers in school, working at the boys and girls club, and art classes. 

I had an amazing opportunity to work with special needs kids one summer; it was such a rewarding experience that God placed in my life. I grew in countless areas and eventually it lead me right here, to the Sonshine Patch. 

This school has been an incredible blessing to me. Coming to work each day and working with these kids, seeing their sweet smiles, and watching them grow is truly heartwarming. I couldn't ask for anything more!
