A Joint Effort of the Great Start Collaborative

   *I am Jason Lehman, the Lead Preschool Teacher for the D.A.T.A Preschool. I grew up in DeTour Village and after graduating from DeTour High School, I went into Basic Training and completed eight years with the Army National Guard. I started my college career at Lake Superior State University and after one semester I transfered to Central Michigan University. There I completed my student teaching and earned my degree in Early Childhood Development with a minor in Recreation. I am happy to get the opportunity to teach in the same school and town that I grew up in and look forward to all the future preschoolers.
  *Hello! My name is Brianna Kuiper the assistant teacher aide. I am 23 years old, and live on Drummond lsland. I will have my CDA (Child Development Associate) completed come this May. I am also taking general classes through Bay Mills Community College. After my general classes are done I will be starting to pursue my Assiociates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I love being with the preschools and enjoy being a part of their lifes and teaching them new things before they enter Kindergarten. I cannot wait for more preschool years to come.
