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!

After more than 20 years as writer and editor, God has led me to my lifelong passion: teaching young children. I’m excited for the opportunity to work with your families!

I most recently served as a teacher for VIPKid, where I taught online English classes to Chinese students ages 3-10. I also authored a children’s book and tutored college students in writing. I’ve been drawn to help others since childhood and seek to make a difference in people’s lives and the world.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with a minor in Psychology from Oakland University and have worked for such companies as Campbell-Ewald Advertising, McCann Worldgroup Detroit, Meritor Automotive and Kmart Corporation. As a freelance writer, I created numerous blog posts for adoption websites to help educate and encourage others who are going through similar situations.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking, biking, visiting parks and spending time with my family. Faith, love and family are at the center of my heart, which brings me to my favorite Bible verse: 1 Corinthians 13:13: "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
