About Faith Preschool

Meet Our Teachers

Kelley Britt, Director

Hello, my name is Kelley Britt and this will be my 11th year at Faith Preschool. I have taught for 10 years and this will be my second year as director. I am married and have two beautiful daughters. My youngest daughter attended Faith Preschool and I fell in love with the kids and the staff. I was hooked and knew I wanted to teach and I still love it! I have my Childhood Development Associate, homeschooled for 2 years and have taught in the children’s ministry at church. I also enjoy spending time with my family, walking my two pups, scrapbooking and watching movies. I truly believe that each child is a true gift from God!

Amy Focht, 3’s Team Teacher

Hi! My name is Amy Focht. I am so excited to be a teacher here at Faith. Children are such a blessing and I love seeing them learn and grow. I have been working with kids for as long as I can remember – from babysitting, to Sunday school, to teaching English online. I grew up in Illinois and then moved to Ohio to attend Cedarville University where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Spanish. I married my college sweetie in 2009 and then began working at a dental office. I was then able to stay home and raise my babies (now ages 4, 6, and 8!) My favorite things are animals (I have a toy poodle named Cookie and a turtle named Jethro!), coffee, and baking yummy treats. My goals are to get to know my students, teach them to be kind, and hopefully make them smile.

Kaitlyn Jurgens, Substitute

Hello! My name is Kaitlyn and I have been working at Faith Preschool since the spring of 2019. I am currently going to school at Purdue University in Richmond, but I live in Huber Heights. I have been attending and volunteering at First Christian Church for about six years; First Christian is where I realized how much I loved working with children and being able to make a positive impact in their lives, which led me to Faith. I am very grateful for this opportunity and excited to meet all of the families attending Faith Preschool.

Kathy Klarer, Substitue/Office

Hello, my name is Kathy Klarer. I had the pleasure of teaching at Faith several years ago when my children were younger and they attended the preschool program. I recently retired from HHCS, but my love for children and helping with their development has brought me back to Faith. I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with your child. I started back to Faith Preschool in 2017 and I will be helping in the office and substituting.  I feel very blessed to have gone full circle, with 25 years of experience and extensive training in Early Childhood education. I have been married for the past 39 years while residing in Huber Heights. I’m very proud of our two amazing children, and very fortunate to be called Nana by my grandson (six) and our new grand-daughter (two). In my free time, I love spending it with my family and my dog. I enjoy getting the family together for Sunday dinners, shopping with friends, fishing, boating and gardening.

Emily Morgan, 3’s Lead Teacher

My name is Emily Morgan and I have been teaching since 2016. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Sciences from Wright State University. I am loving my career as an early childhood teacher! I have truly enjoyed getting to know the families in our community! I am thankful for the opportunity to enrich your child’s life through play, and fun based learning activities. My hobbies are cooking, and learning new crafts. I have been married since 2010 to my husband Brice. Brice is a fire fighter at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

Both of my girls attended Faith Preschool and are thriving as elementary school students! Having children of my own has been a dream come true, and the opportunity to build relationships with other children is an honor and a blessing! Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child!

Andie Muntz, Kindergarten Readiness Team Teacher

Hi, my name is Andrea Muntz. This will be my second year teaching at Faith Preschool. I retired last June after teaching First Grade for 31 years in the Vandalia Butler school district.

Amy Paden, Subsitute/Support Staff

Hi, my name is Amy Paden and I have been working at preschools in the area since early 2017!  I live in Huber Heights with family.  Jonathan and I have been married since 2007.  We have one daughter, Hannah. She is a Faith Preschool graduate and will be in Fourth Grade at Pathway.  We are expecting a son this October! As a family, we enjoy board games, going to concerts, Young’s, zoos, parks and spending time worshiping God together.  I am looking forward to helping out as needed and subbing the last half of the year!

Amanda Peters, 3 & 4’s Lead Teacher

Amanda Peters is happy to be a teacher at Faith Preschool. This will be her 9th year at Faith.  She started working on her Associates degree quite some years ago, putting it on hold to take in the early years of motherhood.  This will be her third year homeschooling her daughters while teaching at Faith. Amanda recently earned her certificate in Children’s Ministry, which she felt would be beneficial to have when it comes to teaching her own children and your children as well. She will begin taking classes online at Grand Canyon University to earn her Bachelors’ degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. This is something that she has a huge passion for.  Amanda and her husband, Jason have been married for almost 17 years and have 3 amazing daughters, who have all went to Faith Preschool. Aubrey is 16, Savannah is 13, and Sage is 5. Amanda enjoys teaching her own children and feels blessed to be given the opportunity to teach your children, while watching them grow this year.

Maria Ramos, Kindergarten Readiness Teacher

Hello my name is Maria Ramos, and this will be my second-year teaching at Faith Preschool. I have worked as a preschool teacher for 2 years in South Carolina and loved everything about it.

I was born in Cambridge, U.K where I grew up and studied Business Management for 5 years and received a National diploma in Business. My mom and siblings all still reside in England. I have been married for almost 10 years to my husband, Daniel. Daniel is active duty in the US Air Force and is currently stationed at Wright Patt AFB. We have 3 children Noel (9), Lucas (5) and Athina (4). My family and I are fairly new to Ohio, we moved from South Carolina where we lived for 6 years and before that we were stationed overseas in Japan for 2 years and the U.K. I love spending time with my family, reading, being outdoors, walking my dog Raven, and cooking. I am truly blessed and honored to be teaching at Faith Preschool and I am really looking forward to getting to know all the kids and their families.

Heather Richardson, Substitute

My name is Heather Richardson. I am from western New York. My husband and I have been married for 13 years. He is in the Air Force. New York, Texas, and Maryland are places we have called home. Ohio has been home for us since 2017. We have three children: Evelyn and Logan who are seven-year-old twins and Grace, who is five years old.

I received my bachelor’s degree in biology from St. Bonaventure University, along with a minor in Spanish. I also have an associate degree in applied science in ophthalmic science that I obtained while I was in the military. I am currently working on my master’s degree in secondary education at Grand Canyon University. I have always loved school because I am always looking to learn something new!

I served six years in the Air Force with one tour to Iraq. I was an ophthalmic assistant and worked in optometry, ophthalmology, and refractive surgery in that time. I loved working in the Air Force with patients, but I was also a supervisor to several people. My role included training them how to perform tests and teach them the skills they needed to be successful in the clinic. When I was doing my undergrad, I was a tutor for several classes. I have experienced various instances where I am instructing, so I believe this is my calling!

I am extremely excited to be a staff member of Faith Preschool! My twins attended the school and now my youngest is. It is a place where traditions and a jumpstart on your children’s education begins!

Linda Siefert, Substitute

Christopher and his wife, Bethany, are stationed in AZ and serving our country in the Air Force.  They are the proud parents to Asher.  Zachary and his wife, Heather, live in KY.  And our daughter, Alyssa, is married to Mason, a US Marine, stationed in NC.  They are the proud parents of Isaiah.   I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to be teaching your children and I look forward to sharing my skills and God’s enduring love with your little ones.
