Ms. Krista

I have been a teacher at FDC Preschool for 12 years, also serving as Director of the preschool the past 4 years.  Along with having my Nursery/Kindergarten certificate, I also have a BS in Health & Phys. Ed. and a MS in Elementary Education.  By far, my most enjoyable and creative years of teaching have been with preschool children!  My husband and I have five children ages 9-20 years old, with my oldest in college at Rochester Institute of Technology.  We also have a dog, named Sandy.  I have lived in Marshall Township for nearly 40 years and feel blessed to have a job working with such great families and their children.


Ms. Tara

I began teaching at FDC in 2006.  I have taught both the 4's and 3's programs and now also teach Enrichment classes.  I live in Economy borough with my husband, three children and new puppy.  Our family enjoys traveling, camping and biking.  In my free time I like to scrapbook and bake.  I have a degree in Elementary Education and over 20 years experience in early childhood education.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching at FDC.  I am amazed to see how much children learn during the preschool years and am happy to be part of the process.  I can truly say that I have one of the best jobs out there. 


Ms. Diana

I am thrilled to be a member of the Family Development staff for a third year.  I am blessed to be part of such a fantastic preschool program and often the children’s first school experience.   Prior to joining FDC, I was an Administrator at Northern Health Systems.  Becoming a mother led me to my newest passion, teaching young children, and not just my own!  I started out as an Aide working two mornings a week with the 3’s; and now, I am so thankful to be with both the 3’s and 4’s, five mornings!  

I have lived in Marshall Township for the past 13 years with my husband and three children. I have held volunteer leadership positions throughout the years in youth programs, Girl Scouts and at the church.   Watching my children flourish during their preschool years, I came to know what a spectacular place FDC is.  

I love the children; they brighten my day, and I LOVE witnessing the children blossom throughout the school year!  It is truly amazing!  I look forward to getting know each of you and your little ones.   



Ms. Kathy

 I have been part of the FDC family for the past nine years teaching in the four-year-old program. I hold a degree in Elementary Education and previously taught both forth and fifth grade in Columbus, Ohio. After relocating back to my hometown, Cranberry Township, I was asked to aide in the Kindergarten program at St. Alphonsus. There, I spent many years volunteering in a variety of areas. I was hired in 2003 to start up a preschool program at A Kid’s Place and shortly after was offered a job at FDC and just couldn’t turn down such a wonderful opportunity! I absolutely love working at the Family Development Center! Each day is a new adventure and real joy helping to facilitate your children’s growth and development. I also currently teach Children’s Liturgy and CVOL at St. Ferdinands church.

I reside in Cranberry Township with my husband Andy, and our children, Drew, Haley, Madison, Ian and our dog, Sadie.
