Our Building Support Teachers
Wendy, Building Coordinator
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.
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.
Sarah, Building Support Teacher
Hi I’m Sarah, in 2021, I moved from the east coast where my husband was stationed in the Navy and where I went to Old Dominion University In Norfolk Virginia and majored in Psychology! I enjoy reading about children’s mental health and, taking my Boston terrier on walks in the evening. My husband and I are expecting our first baby this February. I enjoy yoga, rock collecting, and teaching others about coping skills and how to use them to better their lives and express their feelings. I love that The Learning Gardens has such a fun creative art, music, and reading program for the little ones. I look forward to working with your kids and hope to have a fantastic summer and school year!
