Director/PreK Lead Teacher: April Matz firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello, my name is April Matz and I love being a part of Kiddy City Preschool. I have a bachelor's degree in both Early Childhood and Elementary Education; as well as, my Master's degree in Reading with a Reading Specialist certification. I have enjoyed teaching in many settings in the past including preschool, elementary (numerous levels), and teaching at Reading Area Community College. Additionally, I have enjoyed working with teens, children, and families for over the past twelve years at Mohn's Hill Church. It has been a blessing to host a story time for preschoolers and a summer reading program for elementary students here at the church. I love leading and teaching at Kiddy City Preschool. It is exciting to be a part of what God is doing at Kiddy City Preschool!
