Meet the LCP Staff

Deaconess Phaedra, Director

I joined the Living Christ Preschool Team November 2021 after my family moved to Sun Prairie when my husband took a call to Bethlehem Lutheran Church as one of their pastors. We previously lived in Willowbrook, IL and worked together at St. John Lutheran Church in Dairen. I was called to St. John as their Director of Youth and Family Ministries and over the last several years received my Early Childhood Director qualifications in order to help with the Early Learning Center there. 

I completed my Masters Degree from Concordia Seminary in 2007 with a major in Systematic Theology and Deaconess Certification. I have had the blessing to serve several churches, mainly working with youth and families. 

My husband, Rod, and I have four children - Elijah, Jonah, Lydia, and Hannah. We love spending time together as a family, playing outside, and visiting the many parks in Sun Prairie. 

Ms. Tina,
Bears Teacher & Assistant Director

I joined Living Christ Preschool 2's classroom in November 2017. I came to LCP with over 15 years of experience in the childcare field.

In January of 2022 was promoted to Assistant director. Loving the balance of teaching in the 2 year old classroom,  helping staff and families.

I love the outdoors and go camping, hiking, biking, and fishing with my husband, Ben, and our two children, Olivia, and Brianna. Our Oldest child, Noah, lives in Seattle making a life of his very own.

I am thankful to spend each day working with your children, helping them develop new skills, and watching them grow.

Ms. Roxanne
Float

My name is Roxanne and I have been working at LCP since March of 2020.  Most of the time you will find me in the kitchen making the snacks for the children and staff members.  Other times I will bounce from room to room wherever I am needed.  I have been working with children since I was 12 years old.  It started when I was in 4-H working with Cloverbuds. I would go on adventures, do special projects and sing/dance to silly songs.  I enjoy working with children so much that I went to school for it.  I have my degree in Early Childhood Education.  From there I was able to learn so much about the young child and the importance of teaching them.  One of my favorite activities is sensory play: smelling something, making music, slime, I love how excited they get.  Outside of work I live in a small town called Arena.  I live with my husband Nick and our dog Dusty.  In my free time I love to cook, paint, listen to music, spend time with my brother, spoil my nieces/nephews, and hang out with friends.  One day I hope to travel to all 50 states and possibly start a family of my own.
