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.

  • VEIL Summer Reading Program

     summer reading

    Wednesdays, 10 am - 2 pm
    Sundays, 2 pm - 4 pm
    through August 5
    in the Fellowship Hall

    The summer reading program provides an opportunity for students to keep their skills sharp over the summer as well as providing enrichment in a topic. Research established that, without enrichment, during the summer months, children lose 50% - 85% of what they learned the previous academic year. This summer’s theme is the Human Body! The lessons will be introduced on Wednesdays. Sundays will provide an enrichment lesson. Please consider volunteering during the summer. Are all welcome, including high school and college students. No Spanish required. Join us as you are able.

    The program includes lunch on Wednesdays. We also need volunteers to host the Wednesday lunches. Can you provide lunch for the children on Wednesdays? You can sign up online to provide lunch.

  • VEIL Ministry Needs

    Summer is a difficult time for many of the VEIL families. As VEIL Programming continues throughout the summer, VEIL will continue to need healthy snacks. Would you help us stock our shelves with some staples?

    - applesauce

    - healthy granola bars

    - goldfish crackers

    - pretzel

    - 100% juice boxes/pouches

    Please place your items in the VEIL Office.

    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. A percentage of all that you spend at Kroger is given to the mission church. Last quarter, VEIL received almost $100 from this program. Please consider signing up.
