Mrs. Anderson is our Four-Year-Old Class teacher’s aide. She joined us in 2010 and has been a wonderful addition to Circle of Friends! Mrs. Anderson has two children, ages 6 and 8. She has had a very active role in their education as a volunteer, first at the preschool level, and now at their elementary school. She will continue to volunteer at their school this year on her days off from Circle of Friends. Teaching comes naturally to her, and we are thrilled to have her as part of our staff. Donna has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Finance.
Mrs. Schaller retired as of June 2017 after 23 years with Circle of Friends Preschool. Her love and dedication to our school was unsurpassed. Mrs. Schaller will continue to be a part of our school bringing her love and joy of learning as an advisor and substitute teacher.
