Teacher : Mrs. Schutz Hi! My name is Erin Schutz and I am so happy to be teaching at Little Blessings! I am a mom to two wonderful daughters who have both attended Little Blessings Christian Preschool and I am so excited to meet the children who will come to preschool this year! My girls loved learning and playing at preschool and I am looking forward to all of the fun busy-ness of learning to come starting in September. Before having children I earned my BEd and taught with Edmonton Public Schools in elementary classrooms. I stayed home when I had my daughters while also caring for other children, volunteering in my girls' school and enjoying this season of motherhood. As a family, my husband Mark, my girls, Quinn and Sadie, and I love to swim, camp and take care of our guinea pigs, Snoopy and Fifi. I also love to hike, listen to podcasts while I knit and try to grow things in my garden. I am so looking forward to the exciting year ahead where I know we will learn so much together.
Educational Assistant and Administrator : Mrs. D My name is Deb Foster. I grew up in Montreal Quebec and moved to Edmonton after getting married. I have three wonderful young adult children and two dogs. I graduated Champlain College with studies in childhood literature and child psychology. I’ve always had a great passion for working with children. I enjoy watching them discover the world around them, hearing them laugh and giggle with delight and seeing them take the simple pleasures in life and embracing every moment of it. I was a bilingual teacher for pre-K to high school, an assistant supervisor at an afterschool, I ran my own day home and presently work part-time at Phoenix Gymnastics Centre. I enjoy going for long walks with my dog, hiking, baking, reading and writing. My philosophy in life is that each individual has a special God given gift and talent they are born with. It just takes time to discover the gifts and talents, nurture them and share them with the world. I look forward to being a part of that journey in each little one I have the blessed opportunity to meet.
