Jana Samuelson

Director and Teacher of 4 and 5 year olds

My education background is from Washington State University.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and a minor in Psychology.  I have many years experience in Early Childhood Education including various preschool programs and I did my college internship through the National Head Start program.

I currently serve as Children’s Ministry Director at Shoreline Covenant Church.  I work with children of all ages and their families and enjoy the time I get to spend with both the kids and parents.

Most importantly, I am the mom of three boys and they have taught me a great deal about kids. I have a great deal of elementary school experience now and I know a lot about Kindergarten transitions and expectations, so I have plenty to share with PreK parents! 

My family has lived in the Seattle area since 2003 and we found a home at Shoreline Covenant Church shortly after we relocated here.  We believe that SCC is a great place to raise our boys and serve the Lord!



Katie Montzingo

Teacher of 2 1/2, 3 and 4 year olds

Hi, my name is Katie Montzingo.  I have been on staff here at Shoreline Covenant Preschool since the fall of 1993. My husband Doug and I have 3 amazing children and 5 incredible grandkids.  We have been part of the Shoreline Covenant Church for 30 years.  We have been blessed with many opportunities to serve our Lord here, and one of the best for me has been my time in the classroom at preschool.

I am excited and delighted with the privilege of walking through the first few years of school experience with the little ones entrusted to my care.  It never fails to amaze me what wonder and desire for learning my students bring to our room each day.  Teaching is a gift from God and I prize it with all my heart.

Each new year brings me such joy with the special young people God places in my life.  I look forward to knowing and loving each and every one. I strive to create an atmosphere that invites your little ones to reach out and seek learning in a fun and experiential way.  With God’s help they will be ready to move on in their future school journey with confidence and excitement.

Come start the journey with us!
