Our teachers are crucial to the quality of our program. Providing physical care is just the beginning of building trusting, secure relationships needed for children to thrive. Our teachers have been carefully chosen for their warmth and nurturing skills. They are sensitive to the individual and recognize that each child is unique and different. Our teachers participate in an extensive amount of professional development, including leadership training conferences, staff meetings, and continuing education courses. Each teacher is required to obtain at least 24 hours of enrichment training per year, ensuring that they are more than equipped to serve our students. They are CPR and First Aid certified, and they undergo broad background checks, which include FBI fingerprinting and Ministry Safe. While there are many characteristics that make our teachers great, their love for the Lord and dedication to serving Him shines the brightest. Your children will undoubtedly love their teachers!

I would love to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself and how God has led me to teach at Lakeside Baptist WEEschool. I'm married and have one child. My family and I are members here at Lakeside, and we also volunteer in children's church on Sundays when we can. Before coming to the WEEschool, I worked as a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA), taking care of the elderly for four years. Taking care of people, old and young, has always been my passion, but after four years of working with the elderly, I felt the Lord was leading me to work with children. My first experience working with children was at Circle of Life Learning Center in their school-aged class. I loved working with the schoolers, but God had a bigger plan for me. So, after about four months there, I went back to taking care of the elderly, and the Lord placed me with a wonderful, allowing me to take care of their mother. I took care of their mother for two years, and after she passed away, I took abreak from that job and asked God to lead where he wanted me to go next. That's when Mrs. Briggs asked if I would like to become part of her wonderful team as a substitute teacher. I was so happy to join the team, and after my first day, I knew this is where God wanted me to be.

Hello, my name is Joan Coleman and I am the lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher at Lakeside Baptist WEEschool. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in English. After teaching for several years, I became the director of an after-school program. My teaching career took a detour when I became a stay-at-home mom of two boys. Both boys attended Baylor University and have since moved on to their own careers in California. After all that time, I was blessed with the opportunity to get back to what I love most, teaching children. This is my 6th year as the Pre-K teacher at Lakeside WEEschool and my 9th year in Early Childhood Education. I have supervised the child actors backstage at The Promise in Glen Rose for 5 seasons.A native Houstonian, I moved to Glen Rose about 10 years ago. In my leisure time, I enjoy walking the beautiful hills of Glen Rose, playing with my two Australian Shepherds, riding my big paint horse, drawing and writing. Recently, I have had two of my children’s books published through Christian Faith Publishing Company, And Zowen Makes 10! and Tadpole and Turtle: A Story of Friendship.I am dedicated to caring for the needs of each child and helping them grow, not only academically, but also in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ.

Lakeside Baptist WEEschool is a ministry of Lakeside Baptist Church. We are a Weekday Early Education program that provides a safe and loving learning environment for children, giving them the opportunity to grow spiritually and socially.  Our purpose is to extend the ministry of Lakeside Baptist Church by providing love, care, and education to families within our community. As a ministry, we know that we are called to serve more than the students enrolled in our program; mothers and fathers, grandparents, and siblings are not excluded from our prayers and support. LBC WEEschool is staffed with wonderful teachers who love the Lord and feel that He has placed a calling on their lives to work with children. They consider it a true blessing to teach children about the God who created them and loves them. Our teachers are committed to praying for the children in their care and their families on a daily basis. Every day, our students attend Chapel: a place where they can gather together in worship and learn Bible memory verses. God's word is revealed to them each and every day through Bible stories, dramas, poems, and puppet shows. Students are exposed to a variety of worship music, allowing them to hear and play many different types of instruments. In addition to Chapel festivities, Lakeside Baptist WEEschool uses the A Beka Book curriculum, which helps our program provide a strong foundation for learning. We believe that each child is a gift from God who is fearfully and wonderfully made. Each is special and should be cherished and recognized for the unique little individuals that they are... That is what we strive to accomplish here at Lakeside Baptist WEEschool.
