Kristen Ljung

DIRECTOR
 

Hi, my name is Kristen Ljung, Director of the Good Shepherd Preschool! I have enjoyed working with all of our families and watching our little ones grow and prepare for their elementary school careers. I have been actively involved in early childhood education since 2009, and worked my way from being a teacher to a Director for one of the largest corporate preschools in the region. Prior to starting with Good Shepherd Preschool, I was home raising my two little ones, and leading a Co-Op Preschool with other families.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I hold a Bachelor of Art's degree in Liberal Studies from California State University, Chico. My goal is to create a positive environment for children to grow, and to excite them to learn. While teaching in both elementary and preschool classrooms, I have enjoyed challenging children with curriculum, and finding fun in education.  

I felt the call to serve our community, and that call brought me here. I hope to support and grow our preschool for our little learners. I truly enjoy working in early childhood education, and just can't wait to bring my energy and enthusiasm to your family! I am very happy to be a part of Good Shepherd Preschool and can't wait to meet each and every one of you!

Mallory Schulz

ASSISTANT DIRECTOR
 

Hi, my name is Mallory Schulz, Assistant Director of Good Shepherd Preschool! I started my career in Early Childhood Education in 2005 and I come to Good Shepherd with experience working with children from 2 years old through 6thgrade. I love watching little ones discover new things and learn about the world around them. It is my passion to share my faith in Jesus with the children that I teach and it is truly a blessing for me to be here at Good Shepherd.

I have a BA in Child Development from California State University, Sacramento, and have experience both as a Preschool Teacher and Director. I recently took some time away from the classroom to start a family and am so excited to be back in the field I love!
