I'm Miss Wendy, the PreK 4 teacher at Abiding Presence Preschool. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Western Michigan University and a Master’s degree in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College. My teaching career began in the Waterford Public School District where I taught 5th grade for four years. Then I enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom. When my own children attended Abiding Presence Preschool, my passion for teaching returned. In 2006, I began teaching at our preschool. I have fallen in love with the fun-loving energy of four and five year olds and feel blessed to be part of the Abiding Presence Preschool staff and community.

I’m Miss Barb, and I’m so excited to be teaching at Abiding Presence. I grew up just down the road in Troy, and graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I am married with four daughters who all attended Abiding Presence Preschool. I enjoyed the preschool years with my girls so much that I knew I needed to get back to teaching. After sending my youngest off to kindergarten, I joined the Abiding Presence Preschool staff. It’s a joy to be on the other side of the classroom door, returning to what I love to do!

I’m Miss Lindsay and I’m so excited to be teaching the 3-year-old classes at Abiding Presence! I taught for 3 years at Rochester Church Preschool before coming here to APPS. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Wayne State University when I originally planned to be an elementary school teacher. I came to know that teaching preschoolers was my niche when my own two daughters went to preschool and I have been pursuing that dream ever since. My family and I love to go camping, ride bikes, go on hikes and anything else you can do outdoors. The best part about teaching 3-year-olds is watching how much they grow in a year!
