Director and Lead Teacher:
Favorite Bible Verse: Ephesians 2:8-10 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Hello! My name is Allison Piasecki, and I am excited to serve as the new Preschool Director/Lead Teacher. My family and I are excited to join Crown of Life as members and to see how God leads us to serve Him by serving at Crown of Life.
As an educator, I have over twenty years of teaching experience from preschool to eighth grade. When my children were young, I served as the preschool director and teacher at Shepherd’s Gate Lutheran Preschool in Shelby Township, and then served as kindergarten teacher at St. Paul Lutheran Sterling Heights. After teaching for eleven years at Immanuel Lutheran Church and School in Macomb, I am excited to be back in a preschool classroom where my true heart and passion lie.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Oakland University with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education from Saginaw Valley State University. In addition, I have completed the Lutheran synodical colloquy from Concordia University Ann Arbor. Teaching is truly my God-given passion and gift. I consider it pure joy to share His love with children and watch them grow not only academically, but most importantly, spiritually. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the future!
Favorite Bible Verse: Ephesians 3:20 "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us."
My Confirmation Verse: John 8:31-32 "To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.' "
Hello! My name is Catherine Purcell, and I am excited to serve as the new Preschool Teacher Assistant. My family and I have been members of Crown of Life since 2005, and I love being able to continue to serve God through Crown. I serve by being in the Crown of Life Choir, volunteer for many events, and by being on the church council as the newly-elected fellowship chair holder. This is Jesus's power working through me to serve the kingdom.
I am currently attending Oakland University finishing my bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. I have a passion for people in trying to understand their needs. I always felt that God gave me a sign that my purpose on Earth was to help people and to contribute my part to the rest of society. I feel I can accomplish my purpose through the field of Psychology. I also have a passion for children and being able to see their abilities to learn and grow in Christ. I am blessed for being given this opportunity and can't wait to see what God has in store!
