Jolee Wilke–Director and Kindergarten teacher.
My name is Jolee Wilke. I am married and have two daughters that are married. I have been blessed with three granddaughters Emmalynn, Savannah, and Ellie.
I have been a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church since 1989. I have taught Sunday School and VBS over the years.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in early childhood education and have been teaching since 2009.
I live on acreage and love the outdoors, such as hiking, fishing, boating, and hanging out with my dog Rocky. Most importantly doing things with my family, whatever it is, is my favorite.
I love teaching children about God! My focus as a teacher is to teach children to have fun while learning. If they start school having fun and learning at the same time I have succeeded!
Shannon Lorenz–Preschool teacher for the 3 year old class and almost 3’s.
My name is Shannon Lorenz. I have been married to my husband, Aaron, for 22 years. We have four children, Molly(21), Ryan (18), Connor (15), and Anna (12). I grew up in Spokane, and spent ten years living in South Dakota, and Minnesota, before moving back to Spokane in 1997.
Both of my boys play baseball, so in the spring and summer months I spend a lot of my time at the ball field with my family enjoying their games. I also enjoy quilting, hiking, and spending time on our boat on Lake Coeur d’ Alene.
I am a member of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church. I taught four year old Sunday School for many years, as well as helping with vacation Bible school, and youth group activities.
I have worked for Spokane Public Schools as a teacher’s aid for the past five years. I started working at Meadowlane Christian School in March of 2014. I have an AA in Early Childhood Education. I have really enjoyed being able to help children learn and grow, academically, socially, and spiritually. It is so important for children to know that God loves them and that He will continue to love them and be with them throughout their lives. I am looking forward to the start of a new school year, and getting to know all of the children and their families at Meadowlane!
Jeannie Glatt 4 day four year old teacher
Hi, my name is Jeannie Glatt. I am born and raised right here in Spokane. I am happily married with two amazing kiddos (Ella and Vinny). My oldest Ella is in leadership and math is a cool club. Vinny is involved in sports, and can’t watch enough sports on TV. We love to go to our lake cabin on Sacheen and take walks to Manito Park with our dog Pepper.
Our family church is South Hill Bible, to which our kids go for AWANAS. It is so amazing to see my kids being followers of Christ. The fact that I get to teach about our Father to other children at Meadowlane, I couldn’t be happier!
I have worked at Meadowlane Christian School since February of 2016. I am so grateful to be part of such a great community of parents, teachers, and staff at Meadowlane. While working at Meadowlane, I am in school for my B.A. in Elementary Education.
Working with children brings me pure joy. The fact that they have such an imagination and joy for learning new things brings me happiness. I am so grateful for the path that God has set for me.
I look forward to spending the year with your child(ren)!
