Hi, I’m Teacher Dawnette.
I am a wife and mother of three grown daughters.

I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Western Oregon State University in 1992, and have had my teaching license for 20+ years.
I taught Kindergarten in the public school for 6 years, and have been teaching Preschool and Pre-K since 2014.

I love teaching and am always looking to hone my skills.
I have attended many conferences and classes to further my education including the Zoo-Phonics Preschool Curriculum training

Melissa Law

Preschool Teacher 

I am Teacher Melissa, and I am a wife and mother to 3 growing children.

Each of my own children attended Living Way Preschool when they were preschool age, and several of my friends' children too!  Our family loved the Preschool Program.  When the opportunity to join the Preschool staff came available I was excited.

I enjoy being involved with the children and helping them learn new skills everyday.  I love teaching in the Preschool Program.

My family is active in the Living Way church community.  My husband is the Youth Director, and together we run the Laundry Love ministry.


Lizzy Soderquist

Teacher Assistant

 Hi, I am Teacher Lizzy

I found out about Living Way Preschool through my Mom, as she is also a preschool teacher.

When an assistant position became available, I applied and looked forward to joining the preschool staff.  

I enjoy working with the students and teachers at the school.  Maybe teaching is in my future.
