Preschool Director

Paula Drake

I have been married to my husband, Marty, for 21 years and have three gorgeous children, Jordon, 19, Cameron, 17, and Allison, almost 15. Allison is a Freshman this year and Cameron is a Junior at Lakota East. My oldest, Jordan is a Sophomore at Ohio University. I love being a mom! I have a Bachelors Degree in Recreation Administration from Indiana University, and have always worked with children. I worked for the Parks and Recreation Department throughout high school and college. After graduating, I moved to Dallas and worked for the Boys & Girls Club (in Dallas and later Fort Worth). While at "the Club", I was the Aquatics Director, the Education Director and eventually the Branch Director, responsible for the operations of the entire club. After my second child was born, I decided not to return to the working world, and I opened my own in-home child care. I did this for almost 5 years. I taught preschool (4 year-olds) for 7 years in Grapevine, Texas. Six years ago, my husband was transferred up here to Cincinnati. This is my fifth year teaching at Lord of Life Christian Preschool. I absolutely love teaching. It is so rewarding! This is such a fun age - they pick up on so much. I am going to work very hard to ensure that the children have a great school experience and are well prepared for Kindergarten. I am SO EXCITED to be teaching the 3's & 4's classes again. We strive very hard to develop a lifelong love of learning and have tons of fun along the way.

    A very easy way to help support VEIL: If you shop at Kroger, please sign up with their Community Rewards program & choose VEIL as the group you’d like to support. Our number is 29572.
