Meet our Staff!

Jessica Koch

I started as the director here at Living Christ Preschool in October 2017.  I received my undergraduate degree in Secondary Education from Concordia University Wisconsin and I completed my Masters in Curriculum & Instruction for Early Childhood Education from Concordia University Portland.  My husband and I enjoy living in Madison with all of the places for hiking, camping, and exploring nearby.  We frequently take our puppy for walks around the lake and the capitol square. 

Sisca Bolling

I am Sisca Bolling and I teach in the 3's classroom.   I grew up in Indonesia, where I had a chance to lead youth ministry in college and at church. I also taught the Indonesian language to US college students.  In 2003, I came to Madison where I studied and got my Masters degree from UW-Madison, while teaching and working at the Indonesian Language Program. In 2015, I started to work at Living Christ Preschool. As church member at Living Christ, my husband and I have been helping with the Sunday School program.

With our two children, currently 5 & 8 yrs old, we like to travel, cook, garden, bike, hike, play board games, or do any other fun things together.

Amanda Higgins

I am Amanda Kane, I work as one of the lead teachers in the Infant Room.  I'm a recent graduate from UW Madison with a degree in Biology. I am originally from the Green Bay area and have been in Madison for the last 4 years. My parents live in Green Bay and my sister is a senior at UW Green Bay. I am enjoying working with the children at Living Christ and helping them to learn as much as they can about Christ and friendship.

Tina Niesen

I am Tina Niesen and I joined Living Christ Preschool 2's classroom in November 2017. I came from an administrative position in an after-school program.  However, I missed working with children, as I had been able to do the 10 years previously as a teacher at a local early learning center.  I love the outdoors and go camping, hiking, biking, and fishing with my husband, Ben, and our three children, Noah, Olivia, and Brianna. In my free-time I volunteer at my children's school, lead two different Girl Scout troops, and spend time in my vegetable garden.  I am thankful to spend each day working with your children, helping them develop new skills, and watching them grow.

Gayathri Senthil

I am Gayathri Senthil and I am one of the Lead teachers in the One-Year-Old classroom. I completed my Bachelors in Nutrition and Dietetics and then I did a certification course in Special Education in Early childhood. I always love to be with children because I see God in each one of them. Also, they are the future of our world and being a part of their growth makes me so happy and complete. I have been married for eleven years and have two lovely boys. In my spare time I like to listen to music,

cook, and play crazy games with my children.

I am Lizzy Huncosky, I work as one of the teachers in the 3's classroom as of February 2019. I was born and raised in Madison, WI and have been a member here at Living Christ  Church my entire life. I recently graduated from UW-Platteville with a degree in Elementary Education/Early Childhood Education. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my fiance/family/friends, running, traveling, and spending time outdoors. I am excited to continue this journey with your children and teach them about God's love.
