On a personal note, I love to travel.  I have been to Sweden, England, France, Italy, the Netherlands, but my favorite place I've been is Australia (where I met my husband).  I love to take pictures and scrapbook.  I also love spending time with family and friends."

TLC Preschool & Pre-K Teacher:  Jacque Ritter

"I have worked at TLC for 14 plus years.  Twelve of those years, I have taught Pre-K in the afternoons and covered planning in the mornings for others teachers at TLC.

I have my Elementary Education Degree with an Early Childhood Minor from Black Hills State University.  My greatest joy is when children grasp a new skill or something just clicks with them.  It is awesome to discover and help nurture the individual gift or bent in each child.

I am married to Mark for 30, years.  We have two wonderful daughters, Stephanie, 27, and Rochelle, 25.  I enjoy reading, running, sewing, volunteer work, motorcycling, cross country skiing, etc.
I am very blessed to be able to help children know our precious Savior and Lord Jesus Christ."
