Meet The Staff


Callie Paesano

PreSchool Director

Teaching Experience:

I have an A.A. degree, with a certificate in Early Childhood Education and emphasis in Early Primary Education. This year marks my 31st year teaching… God is good!

How long have you been at Child of Faith Preschool?

I have been blessed to work at Child of Faith Preschool since 2003! I started as the Pre-K teacher and Assistant Director. I became the Director in 2009 and continued to teach Pre-K. It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to instill a love of learning in children. It is also an honor to share the love of Jesus with them as well. I am truly blessed.

Your favorite Child of Faith memory:

One of my favorite memories at Child of Faith Preschool happened last year. I was doing a bible lesson with my class about how God is always with us and one of my boys shared how his grandmother had just passed away. He went on to explain to me and the children that everything was going to be okay because she was in heaven with God. He explained that God would be with his grandfather as well so he wouldn’t be so sad. I asked his parents about this later and they told me this is what he said to them when he learned of his grandmothers passing.

In 2009 God brought me to Child of Faith Preschool. I love my ministry as the Assistant Director and the teacher of the 2 and 3 year olds.

Your favorite Child of Faith memory:

My favorite memories are the group conversations with my classes. I love to hear the children tell stories and share about everything. We all laugh together and these precious moments are priceless.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught in early childhood education for 26 years. I have taught in Lutheran and faith based schools because I feel an importance and desire to teach about the Lord.

How long have you been at Child of Faith Preschool?

I have been blessed to be a teacher at Child of Faith Preschool for almost 4 years, where I have felt welcomed from the first time I walked through the door. It has always been my passion to be able to teach the word of God to little children while having fun and learning of Gods wonders.

Your favorite Child of Faith memory:

My favorite memory if from Vacation Bible School. How everyone, staff and volunteers, all worked together to help teach the children of the one true God. From Bible stories, crafts, snacks, games, music..hats off to them for all their hard work. It was so nice to see so many people involved and all the children that came. I enjoyed every minute.
