My name is Bobbi Schramm. I live in Sioux Falls with my husband Mark and our three boys-Aiden (17), Carter (15), and Spencer (121/2). I attended SDSU and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology with minors in Criminal Justice and Human Services. I also attended DSU and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Special Education. Some activities I enjoy are reading, running, hiking, traveling, shopping but most of all spending time with my family and friends! I love teaching preschool and all the exploring, learning and fun we get to have! I am currently teaching 5 year olds. Prior to teaching at Gloria Dei I taught four years of Kindergarten at Chester Area School. This is my 6th year teaching at Gloria Dei Preschool! I feel truly blessed to be part of this amazing Church and Preschool!
Hello! My name is Dayleen Swanson. My husband Robert and I make our home on a farm near Brandon. We have two grown children: our son, Albert and his wife Natalia (South Carolina) and our daughter Ellen (Sioux Falls). Besides teaching, I like sewing (when there’s time), gardening, sports, Hello Kitty, Coke & Juice Stop. Another LOVE in my life is the Minnesota Twins! I love watching them on TV, listening on the radio as well as taking in a couple games each year if possible (with my daughter).
I am in my fourth-year teaching here at Gloria Dei Preschool. I am loving it and have been blessed in so many ways. I teach 3 yr olds on Tuesday and Thursday, as well as 4 yr olds on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have always had a love for children, watching them grow in knowledge, life skills & their love for God! You may see me around the church otherwise, as I’m involved with Kids Night Out, VBS, Church School, and Wednesday after-school activities.
I can’t wait to grow together with your child as we discover our friends and the world God has given us to explore. Ours will be a room where you will find laughter, fun, hands-on activities and imagination! Will there be tears of frustration and exhaustion? Yes! We will have times where sharing is difficult. We may run out of time for everyone to participate in an activity on that given day, but I will do my best to give each child the chance to experience and try all things in our classroom. It means that may not happen until their next day of class.
I am here to assist you in helping your child grow, getting them ready to learn, practice our listening skills all while experiencing Preschool in a positive environment. God leads our day as we strive to be kind, share and learn to be respectful.
“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15b
