Laura Hoff was called to serve as Kindergarten teacher at Calvary Early Learning Center in 2007. Prior to that she taught for 21 years in 3 different Lutheran schools. Mrs. Hoff loves teaching the Kindergarteners for many reasons. The small class size at CELC gives her an opportunity to give individualized instruction to the students. Mrs. Hoff is very excited about being able to provide the foundation for new readers. It is a wonderful time when children recognize their first words and then begin to sound them out on their own. Her all-time favorite reason for teaching and enjoying Kindergarten is being able to teach about Jesus and praying with the children each day. Their child-like faith helps to strengthen her own.


Lisa Schrecengost is the four-year old preschool teacher. She has been teaching at Calvary Early Learning Center since 2012 and has over 25 years experience working with children. She has been a childcare director’s assistant, childcare director, teacher’s assistant and teacher. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing the child’s face light up when they accomplish a new task or learn something new. It is such a blessing to be able to love, nurture, teach and lead these little ones into a relationship with Jesus. Watching the children progress and grow throughout the school year is very rewarding, and when they give you that smile or hug, you know you are making a difference.


Lori Rockwell teaches the Three Year Old and Pre-K classes. She began teaching at Calvary Early Learning Center in the fall of 2016, but has been teaching for more than 25 years in Lutheran schools. She has experience teaching children from 3 year old through 3rd grade. She is an advocate of Lutheran schools and feels it is beneficial to educate children in body, mind and soul. Helping students build a strong foundation in their early years is very important, but helping them to know who Jesus is and His love for them is the most important thing for children to learn. God has created each child to be unique and special, and helping children to discover and develop their skills, talents, and gifts is her passion. She loves to see children learning, singing, engaging, creating, praying, building friendships, laughing, and having fun. It's who we are.
