Tina Leiner, Lead Teacher of the Begindergarten
Tina has been with Heaven's Elect Christian Learning Center and Daycare since 2011. She first received her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. However, she believes God had a different plan for her life. She felt a tug in her heart to work with children. Tina completed her Preschool Child Development Associates Credential in 2008. Tina has been working with children for over 11 years.
She strives to create a fun, loving, and safe environment for the children in her class. She implements a balance of structure and free choice in their everyday schedule. Her goal is to prepare the children for kindergarten. Tina is creative, she includes music and fun activities to keep the children excited and entertained while learning. Her favorite part of the day is teaching the children about Jesus and watching them grow in His love.
Her relationship with God shines through her love of teaching Gods word. He always provides for her when life gets her down, and is always there to carry her through.
When Tina is not working she spends her time with her husband and two daughters. As a family they enjoy being outdoors, traveling, reading, and taking walks.
