Good Samaritans,

            I am so excited for our upcoming year and getting to be your teacher.  I want to tell you a little bit about myself.  I grew up here in Lebanon, MO, and graduated from Lebanon High School in 2005.  I married my High School sweetheart and together we have 3 amazing kids.  Our oldest son Hayden is 9 going into 3rd grade, our daughter Lydia is 2 and will be in Peaceful Pals, and our baby Lukas was born in March.  My family attends Mt. Olivet Church, and we love how they have accepted us into their family!  I have education in Early Childhood Education and Development, and though I no longer work in the dental field, I am a Registered Dental Assistant with experience in orthodontics.  I have always had a passion for children, and believe this is what God has called me to do.  I can’t wait to get to know each and every one of you, and watch you grow and learn this year.  We are truly blessed here at Bright Beginnings with our students and families!

Ms. Janell


I have always loved working with children and I am so excited to continue that adventure at Bright Beginnings. After graduating from Southwest Baptist University, I taught first grade at Joel E. Barber for eight years before the Lord open the door for me to be the children's director at our church and spend more time with my babies. My husband Tim and I have three wonderful children, Hayden (8), Hanidee (4) and Huxson (3). We enjoy playing games, sports, dancing, singing and enjoying God's beautiful creation's together. I can't wait to meet you all and begin our fun together!
