North Como Preschool Staff

Ms. Sher, Director and Teacher 3-4 year olds

Hello! I love being a part of North Como Preschool. I have been a part of the North Como Preschool family since 2012.  I have been teaching 3 and 4 year olds since 2010, and have been very active with ECFE since 2002. I’ve also been an on-call substitute at Parkview Center School in Roseville, taught Sunday school and have been a Girl Scout Leader.

My husband Karl and I live in Roseville, with our son Cooper (14yrs) and our daughter Carsyn (11yrs). In the winter, you are sure to find us at the ice rink! I love to camp, garden, scrapbook, and ORGANIZE absolutely anything and everything! When I’m not doing that, nothing can compare to snuggling with my two rescue dogs, Gidget and Zoey, reading and drinking a nice latte.

My favorite part of teaching is to see the look on the children’s faces during those, “I did it myself moments!” I just love it when they suddenly understand their world a little better and make a step toward independence. My background is in psychology and sociology with an emphasis in child development from the U of MN. I also hold an MSM from Cardinal Stitch. I previously worked with individuals with developmental disabilities.

I feel so blessed to be a part of the North Como Preschool family!

Ms. Heidi, Teacher Asst 3-4 year olds

I was born & raised in St. Paul near Lake Phalen. I graduated from Johnson High School. I attended & graduated from Bemidji State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Service & Child Psychology.

I married Tom Wenzel in 1990. I have two beautiful children. Daniel, who is a senior at the University of Minnesota-Mpls. Amelia is a senior at Roseville High School.

I was a stay-at-home mother for 15 years, participating in much volunteer work at my children’s elementary school, church nursery, & vacation Bible school.

I enjoy walking, reading, baking & vacationing with my family. I am happy for the opportunity to help, encourage, and teach preschoolers!

Ms. Stephanie, Teacher 4-5 year olds

I have been teaching at North Como Preschool for three and a half years. I have 19 years of experience in working with and teaching young children. I find it very rewarding teaching preschool aged children. They are so full of life and want to learn so much. Their bright shiny faces brighten up the world.

I attended the University of MN, Morris and also the University of WI, River Falls, were I earned my math degree. My Early Childhood teaching degree comes from Concordia University in St.Paul.

My family, which consists of my husband Jim, son Brad, and daughter Heidi. We live in South St.Paul. We enjoy spending time together as a family.  We also have a cat named Smokey.  I am looking forward to teaching your children and helping them grow socially, physically, and cognitively.
