Meet Cole! - Older Preschool Teacher
My name is Cole Johnson Jensen. I have been at CCCC since the winter of 2014, working first in all three classrooms as a CCW and then Assistant Teacher, and now as a lead teacher in the Older Preschool room. I am currently a student at the University of Minnesota, completing my final semester to obtain my BS in Early Childhood Education. I love young children for their constant excitement and passion for exploration, and I am lucky to learn alongside them on a daily basis. I am enthusiastic about exercise, especially cycling, riding my bike everywhere I go! Outside of biking, I love to cook spicy food and read books! I am so thankful to be here with the amazing families and teachers at CCCC!
Meet Rachel P.! - Older Preschool Teacher
My name is Rachel Pike. I started as a CCW and Assistant Teacher Float here at CCCC in December 2003. I received my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota in the spring of 2007, completed student teaching in a first grade classroom in 2009, and in the summer of 2011 finished my Masters of Education. I like to dance, sing and travel as often as I can!! Teaching children, however, is one of my all time favorite activities! I have been a full time teacher in the older preschool room since the summer of 2008, and I love it! I cannot wait to get to know each of the new preschoolers and their families!
