Lead Teacher

  I’m Ms. Susanne, and I am so excited to be at ODS as a 1 year old teacher! I have been married to my husband for 23 years and we have lived in Rock Hill for almost 2 years. We absolutely love the town of Rock Hill! We have twin daughters that are 20 years old, and both juniors in college.

  I began teaching preschool in the 2 year old classroom when my daughters started kindergarten, moved to the 3 year old classroom for 12 years, and have been in a 1 year old classroom for a year and a half. I absolutely love engaging this age with love, praise, and encouragement.

  My favorite bible verse is “Be Strong and Courageous. Do not Fear or be in dread of them. For it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.  Deuteronomy 31.6

Rustin

Assistant Teacher

I am a boy mama of 3, Axel (3), Kalum (2) and Rocco (6 months). I have been married to my husband Andrew for 4 years. We are a proud military and firefighter family! We live in Rock Hill and I am a Fort Mill native!

 

I graduated from Charleston Southern University with a bachelors of psychology and worked as an ABA therapist for a while before having my own children! After my first child, I began working in preschool until becoming a full stay at home mom.

 

I truly love being with my kids and being a positive part of children’s lives! The first few years of a child's life are so important. I believe a good early childhood education is key for a solid foundation for the rest of our lives.

It is an absolute blessing to be a part of a Christ-centered preschool!

 

In my free time, I have a passion for all things fitness and being outdoors with my children.

Lead Teacher

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 10 years this Fall . We have three sweet kids and two cats. We are loving life at this stage with three littles to keep everything interesting!

 

All my life I have been around babies and toddlers, as my brothers and I are pretty spaced out and my mom also kept kids often. I started helping with pre-k church when I was in youth group and my love for littles has taken off ever since! I love working with toddlers because it is just amazing how much they are able to learn and grow in such a short amount of time.

 

I love 1 Samuel 12:16 - “Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do right before your eyes!”  It’s a reminder that I need to take a step back sometimes and remember that God’s got this.

Assistant Teacher

I am a Rock Hill native. I have been married to my husband Jae for almost 8 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters.

 

I was an elementary school teacher in South Korea. I was also a preschool Sunday school teacher for many years. Preschool is by far my favorite age to teach. I love watching these sweet children learn and grow.

 

I am so excited to be joining the ODS team! My youngest currently attends ODS and she loves it!

 

In my free time, I love to bake especially with my girls. I am also active at my oldest daughters school. Whenever my family and I have a chance we go to the beach. The beach is our favorite place to visit!

 

My favorite memory verse is: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41‬:‭10‬ ‭NIV‬‬
