Four-year-old Teacher: Shelley Preseau

I was born and raised in the low country and attended Furman University where I graduated with a B.A. After some years I moved back home, married, and had three children. I homeschooled them for fourteen years. During those years I was also active in the children's ministries in our church. My children are all grown and on their own now. After my divorce I returned to the workforce and got a job at my church daycare which led me to where I am now. I have a heart for children. There is nothing more important for a child's future than a loving, understanding, Christ-based start in their early developmental years. They are all unique and wonderfully made. I also believe there is a time and season for everything under the sun. Let us not rush our children into the future, but allow them to enjoy today, stepping time to the beat of their own drum while being their firm foundation. I consider it a privilege to be part of the process. In the time I have for myself I like to read, garden, be near the water, and tea with honey please! :)
