Preschool Staff 2016-2017 School Year
Mrs. Rebecca Toepel - Director
Welcome to St. Peter Lutheran Preschool! My name is Rebecca Toepel and I am the director and lead teacher of our preschool program. In 2003, I graduated from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN and obtained a B.S in Education with a special emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I have over 8 years of experience working in Early Childhood Programs. My philosophy in education is that children are active learners that need to explore their environment through a variety of experiences. As a facilitator of their learning experience, the focus of my teaching is providing careful planning and creating meaningful experiences and most importantly sharing Christ's love with them.
