Dear Resurrection Preschool Parents:
It is with much sadness and profound appreciation that we announce the resignations of Lauralee Hunt and Dedra West as Pre-K teachers.
After 27 years as an educator, Lauralee Hunt is retiring. Miss Hunt helped to found Resurrection Preschool in September of 2000 and served as the Preschool's first director with a total enrollment of 9 students. In retirement Miss Hunt wants to work on her house and fulfill a lifelong dream of working with stained glass.
After 20 years as an educator, 14 at Resurrection Preschool, Miss Dedra will pursue a new career path in the medical field. Miss Dedra has been working hard taking classes in her new field and is now a certified CNA. We are so proud of Miss Dedra and Godspeed in your new career.

Both of these wonderful teachers have instructed so many young people who have gone on to benefit our community in so many big ways. Both Miss Hunt and Miss Dedra find teaching young children as the most rewarding job in the world.  Both teachers said in reflecting on their time at Resurrection, "We love this Preschool!"

In the next few weeks, when you see Miss Hunt and Miss Dedra in the school, please thank them for their years of dedicated service to our children and for helping make Resurrection Preschool the best and most respected Preschool in the area. We will properly recognize their years of service during the graduation ceremony on May 23rd.
In the coming week stay tuned for the announcement of the new qualified Pre-K teachers that will build on the legacy of Miss Hunt and Miss Dedra.

Best regards,

The Rev. Scott A. Kidd                                 Ms. Sonya Chesser
Priest                                                               Preschool Director

This Sunday's Anthem:

A Solo by Larry Holbrook
"The Lord's my Shepherd" comes from Psalm 23, often called the Shepherd Psalm, the most beloved of all the Psalms.  People love it for good reason.  It speaks of green pastures and still waters and restored souls.  But more than that, it speaks of an all-knowing, all-powerful shepherd who devotes full attention to our care and feeding.  It assures us of God's loving presence in our lives, both now and forevermore.

What we don't know about ourselves can really trip us up, our relationships, and generally how we make our way in the world. It can also keep us in the shallows with God. Have you ever wondered what really makes you tick, why certain things motivate you...or why certain things do not? Consider t he Enneagram; an ancient personality type system created by early Church fathers & mothers with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. 

In this formation series, we peek inside each of the 9 Enneagram archetypal human character structures that we naturally gravitate toward. These 9 types form a sort of color wheel that describes the basic archetypes of humanity's tragic flaws, sin tendencies, primary fears and unconscious needs.

The Enneagram is also a sacred map to our soul and a blueprint for developing character that each of us carries throughout our life, but we can't open it until we discover our type. In this series, not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do.  

If you would like to take the typology quiz prior to joining us, you can try it here.
