Meet the Staff
Abi Newell, Early Learning Center Director
I am excited to step into the role of ELC Director during this time at St. John's! Though I am new to the Director role, I have been an Assistant Director for the past three years. I have been working in the field of Early Childhood Education for the past 11 years, including spending several years teaching in the ELC classrooms here at St. John's. I recently returned to St. John's, after spending a few years at another center, and realizing that St. John's was really the best place for me to work. It is home, and I am so excited to be back.
I have been going to church at St. John's for over 25 years, was confirmed here in 8th grade, and even went to school here myself a few years as a child. I sing on the praise team both here and at our Renewal campus. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development, with a concentration in Elementary Education. Then I did some Post-Baccalaureate coursework in Early Childhood Education to become qualified as a Large Center Director.
I would love to put faces with the names, so feel free to stop into the office and introduce yourself. I also tend to be out in the hallway during pick-ups in the afternoon, unless I'm helping in the classrooms. I am looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know your kiddos this year.
