"This is the day that the Lord has made"


Pre 3 and Pre 4 Lead Teacher

Welcome to our classroom! I have been teaching or directing preschool in the Lutheran schools for the last 14 years. Our classroom is a busy place where the environment, materials, activities, schedule and large/small group interactions promote the development of skills and knowledge for learning success. More importantly, we learn to love each other as friends in Christ!

Pre 3 Teacher Assistant

Pre 3 Teacher Assistant

My name is Kate Southern. ¬†I have been a member of Immanuel since I married my husband Tom, in March 2009. I have 4 children- “the bigs”, my step-daughter Emma who is 14 and my step-son Carter who is almost 12, and “the littles” Caraline who is 6 and Coleton who just turned 4. I graduated from MSU in 2004 and went back to get my masters in speech pathology. I have worked with kids my entire career from being an assistant at Tutor Time in Okemos, to being a classroom paraprofessional in Bloomfield Hills. I have worked as an SLP (Speech- Language Pathologist) for the past 7 years in various settings. I am excited to be on the staff at Immanuel because I am passionate about Jesus and glad the Lord has led me back to working with little ones.
