My name is Lynn Hockenberger and it is a true joy for me to come to work every day at Children of Hope Preschool! I have been director of the preschool since 2008 and began here as a teacher since the school opened in 2007. Prior to becoming the director here, I was a preschool teacher in Ahwatukee for a little more than 11 years. I grew up in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English Literature with a concentration in Children’s Literature and a minor in Elementary Education. I continue to take education courses in the field of Early Childhood Education and am currently looking into obtaining my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Administration. I am also currently working towards my national director credential through the Aim4Excellence program. I am married with two children, Laura, and Jake, who keeps me busy as a proud booster of the state champion Desert Vista Thunder Marching Band. I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful preschool and to work with such a great staff. I so appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this special ministry and to work with God’s precious children.
