Hello my name is Ms. Kim! I am having a blast working with the Pre-K classroom! I started working in education back in 2016. I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2018 with a Bachelor's in Child and Family Development. I previously moved to the east side of Michigan about 3 months ago, before the move I lived on the west side of Michigan. Preschool age is amazing to work with because of the "light bulb" moments. You get to watch them discover new things and ideas. I cannot wait to see what ideas these kiddos come up with!
Little Adventurer - Preschool Lead
Hello, my name is Nathan. I am currently the Co-lead teacher in the LA room. I have been with ISW for a little over three years now. The majority of those three years were spent working in the Pre-k classroom but I am loving working with and getting to know the LA class now! I am currently attending Washtenaw Community College with the goal of obtaining a degree in early childhood education. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as relaxing at home or, if the weather is nice outside. I also enjoy most types of card and board games as well as reading books.

My name is Ms. Amanda, I am a mom of three, Maleigha, Noah, and Izzy. I am a huge Tigers fan, I go to as many games as I can! I am a very color person with over 70 tattoos! :) A good time for me would be road tripping, reading, geocaching, bowling, going to concerts, or the beach.

Hello! My name is Barbara! I started at ISW in 2020 as an assistant teach here in the infant room, and I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to move up to being the lead teacher!
