be impossible “ Mathew 17:20


Laurie Duerst,  Co-

I began at Mustard Seed Preschool in 2007. I really enjoy teaching and working with preschoolers. They are so eager to learn and get excited about everything we do in school. The children always make me smile or laugh with what they say or do.

I graduated from college with a degree in Elementary Education. I have been married for 22 years and have four children ages 16, 13, and twins who are 11. They are all very active in sports and school activities so they keep me very busy. We recently got a new puppy which has been a fun addition to our family. I love taking family vacations, baking, boating, hiking, gardening and meeting friends for coffee.

I have been at Mustard Seed since 2009. I am married with two children. My son is 15 and my daughter is 13. They keep me very busy. I graduated from UW-Whitewater with a B.A. in English. Before working at Mustard Seed, I worked in daycare and also did child care in my home. When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family. My long term goal is to write children's books. I am very happy to be part of the Mustard Seed team and  I really love teaching and inspiring  your children!
