Ginny Faubel: Me and My Friends Preschool Owner and Director My family moved to Texas in 2003 from North Carolina. I graduated from the University of North Carolina with a BA in Child Psychology and Sociology. In North Carolina, I worked as a social worker for 3 years. I have taught preschool for 13 years, ages 2 through Pre-K. My husband Michael and I have been married for 21 years, and we have three children ages 18, 15, and 9. We are members at First Baptist Church of Keller and are very involved in music, missions and children’s ministries. We also love baseball! We love to watch it, play it, and watch our kids play it! Go Rangers! A few years ago, a friend of mine asked me what I was going to do once my youngest was in Kindergarten. I told her my dream was to own and operate my own preschool. I had been praying about it and waiting to see what God had in store. She mentioned that her church did not have a preschool program, and that there maybe interest in starting one. After a few meetings, lots of planning, and LOTS of prayer, here we are!
Our program opened in January of 2015 with four students, and by the end of the school year we had 12! We have had a great first school year and are ready to add our second location! God has truly blessed our school!
I am so excited about starting a new year and getting to know your families and kids! I am so thankful that God has given me this opportunity to reach you and your children!
