Hello, my name is Donna Nellis and I am excited to begin my first year at Emmanuel Methodist Preschool. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing in 1986. After working for a few years as a nurse, I then stopped to raise my five children. During that time, I volunteered in children's programs at my church and in the public schools. I realized then how much I enjoyed working with young children. I went back to school to earn my 90 hour Early Childhood Education Certification. For the past five years, I have worked as both a teacher and teacher's assistant in a preschool program. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, cooking and yoga.
