Meet Our Staff:

Wendy Ewald, Preschool Director

Hi! My name is Wendy Ewald. I am a 1979 graduate of Concordia, St. Paul with a B.A. degree in Elementary Education. I have been a Lutheran educator for the past 40 years and continue to LOVE teaching little ones about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as well as all the wonderful things this world has to offer! I have taught preschool through grade 3, and have also started and/or directed several Early Childhood Centers here in the Twin Cities.

My goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, loving, fun, developmentally appropriate, Christian environment where children are free to grow and develop at their own speed in all areas: socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually!  I want the children in my care to know they are loved unconditionally, just the way they are, and that Jesus, their Savior, will never leave them or stop loving them!

My husband, Richard, and I live in Bloomington where I love to spend my free time gardening, reading, walking our dog, spending time with my husband, and babysitting our grandchildren. We have three grown children, two in healthcare and one in education, and two sons-in-law.  

I am excited to be part of the ministry of Christ Lutheran Church and look forward to teaching and caring for all the children God sends our way!
