Anne, Building Support & School Age Teacher

The Learning Gardens has been my second family since the spring of 2008!  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Elementary Education.  I began working as a teacher in the Preschool Unit for several years and was an infant teacher as well. My son was born in 2015 and I spent two years at home with him and now it is my pleasure to be returning back part-time helping throughout the building.  However, I did not come alone because now I am a teacher and a parent to a child attending the Learning Gardens.  My husband, Matt, and I are grateful for the continued support we have received from everyone within The Learning Gardens community.  There is true gratification when your own child is receiving the care that you and your co-workers take so much pride in giving day in and day out.

 

 

 

 

 

Wendy, Building Support Teacher

Hello, my name is Wendy Currie.  I’ve been with The Learning Gardens since June 2015.  I had taken a small break but I’m back for good.  I’m married to my amazing husband, Scott, for 24 years.  We have 2 grown boys.  Kyle, who is going on 20, is also known as the Dragon Master.  He has complete knowledge of red dragons.  This man has helped mold me into the teacher I am today.  Next, we have Austin who graduates this year.  His next adventure is with the US Airforce where he has signed up for a 6-year enlistment.  We are very proud of him.

I started in this field just on a part-time basis to earn a little extra money while I was home with our boys.  I had no idea this career would become my passion.  I’ve worn many hats through the years.  I’ve worked with many age groups but have spent most of my time with one-year olds and 4K.  Each age group has touched my heart; the one-year olds because of the many milestones in their development and the 4-5s for their energy for learning and excitement to be heading off to the big school for Kindergarten.  These marvels keep me so young.  I can’t image spending my days any other place than this school.

 

 

 

Amanda, Building Support Teacher

Hello! My name is Amanda Zuber and I have worked in the Early Childhood field for 14 years.  I have a BS from Edgewood College with a major in Studies in Education and have also taken additional continuing education courses from UW-Whitewater.

I grew up in a small town south of Madison on a dairy farm and now live in Fitchburg with my animal kids: two cats and a bunny (guess you cannot take the farm out of the girl😋).  I am very excited to start a new teaching journey at The Learning Gardens.  Every day with children is an adventure…an opportunity for them to learn and master a new skill.  The pride a child feels when they have accomplished something new independently for the first time lights up my world and gives me great gratification knowing that I am in the right profession!

 

 

Stephanie, Building Coordinator

Hello! My name is Stephanie. I’m the building coordinator at The Learning Gardens! I graduated from UW-Madison with my BA in History and Gender and Women’s Studies. I am currently pursing my MBA with a concentration in Human Resources. I live in Middleton with my boyfriend and our rescue dog, Stella. We enjoy getting out and enjoying everything our beautiful city has to offer. I started as a preschool teacher at TLG in 2017 and have transitioned to the building coordinator role. My favorite part of working at TLG is the amazing families I’ve been fortunate enough to meet and foster relationships with. I am passionate about early childhood education because I believe it builds the foundation for students’ future success.
