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.
