Tamara Lammers – Half-Day Coordinator & Teacher

Blessings! My name is Tamara Lammers. I am the preschool/prekindergarten teacher here at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School/Little Saints Preschool . God called me to this wonderful mission here at St. Paul’s in August of 2004. I grew up on a dairy farm in southern MN wtih 3 brothers and 2 sisters. We attended St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School in Truman, MN. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Bruce, since 1982. We have been blessed with three healthy, wonderful children, Calvin (8/87), Lauren (12/88) and Colin (4/91). I have been in Early Childhood Education since 1994 starting at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and Preschool in Birnamwood, WI (are you detecting a pattern here?). I believe that every child is a gift from God and through fun, loving, caring, Christian guidance they will grow to be the best child of God He intends them to be.

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6        952-447-2117 or 612-877-0051

Jodi Brown—Pre-K Teacher

Hello!  My name is Jodi Brown and I’ve been a teacher at Little Saints since fall of 2013 in the Pre-K/Preschool room.  I’m married to my husband, Nate, and we have two children, Madden and Beckett.  Both children attend Little Saints and have really enjoyed their time here.  Our family currently resides in Savage, MN.  Previously to Little Saints, I’ve taught various age levels since 2009.  Before teaching professionally, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education from the University of North Dakota.  GO SIOUX!  Outside of teaching, I enjoy scrapbooking, watching/playing all sports and spending time with my family!  Thank you for allowing me to be such a special part of your child’s life!
