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!

Hello, my name is Claudia, I am so happy & blessed to be your Crown of Life’s Assistant preschool teacher. Working with children has been my life long Christian calling. I grew up in Rochester in the 70s & 80s. We returned to raise a family in 2003. I have a 19 year old daughter attending college in New York. My son is 13, entering 8th grade at Vanhoosen Middle School.
I have spent many years working and volunteering within the Rochester schools. I went Eastern Michigan University for Elementary Education. I have worked for Orchard Children’s Services, Gateway Montessori preschool, and Ascension of Christ Lutheran preschool. Additionally, I have taught 5th grade religious education and have been a private tutor for school readiness.
I look forward to bringing my education, work experiences and Christian faith to Crown of Life Preschool. It is such a blessing to me to be a part of you and your preschooler’s spiritual growth and daily life.
