Pre-Kindergarten Assistant Teacher

Whitney Thurber

I am extremely excited to be joining the Abounding Love Preschool this fall as an assistant teacher in the pre-kindergarten classroom with Mrs. Brandi Totta.  

My passion is to make sure that children learn about God at a young age because it will strengthen their foundation to become the Christians of tomorrow.  I want the students to know that God exists in all parts of their life and that he is walking alongside them as they go through life’s journey.  Being able to educate children in a Christian environment is a dream come true.

I received a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Arkansas in Athletic Training (Sports Medicine) but by the end of the program realized I had a real desire to teach children.  I returned to school at the University of North Texas and received a Post-Baccalaureate in Education.

My husband, Casey, and I have been married for 9 years.  We have three wonderful children that always keep us on the go.  Our family relocated to Lee’s Summit this past year from Dallas, TX, and we joined Beautiful Savior Luther Church in October of 2016.  I am currently involved in the praise team and actively work with the FIRE Junior High School group as a mentor.

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to educate your children this coming year, and I look forward to the many fun memories we will create over the course of the next year!
