Leslie McGee Director of All Saints Parents Morning Out Program
My name is Leslie McGee, and I am the director here at All Saints’ PMO. I have been serving the Lord since I was 13, and I am an active member of Lebanon Freewill Baptist Church. Before moving to Florence, I was responsible for planning/leading Vacation Bible School, as well as leading the youth group at Will of Faith Southern Methodist Church, in Lamar/Timmonsville.
My husband and I have 4 children; Justin (almost 23), Trent (15), Chase (13), and Carsyn, who attends All Saints’ Preschool (2 ½). When Carsyn was born, I became a stay at home mom, and was, until I started working here in September of 2014. I wanted to return to work part-time, and still be able to be home with her for the majority of the time, as well as be home when my older children got home from school. Through prayer, an opportunity presented itself, and landed me at All Saints’ PMO, as The Awesome Owls 2K Teacher. Never would I have imagined, that I could fall so in love with so many little ones, that weren’t mine, or in my class, for that matter. And it wasn’t just the children I came to love and adore, it was my coworkers, volunteers, and the children’s parents, grandparents, and siblings as well. I also LOVED the position!
Over the summer, the director position was offered to me, and after much consideration and prayer, I accepted it. I look forward to an exciting year in my new position. Another year of learning, continuing friendships, as well as establishing new ones, and most importantly, gaining the trust from our precious little ones and watching them grow and learn.
Favorite verses of scripture:
Philippians 4:13, " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.
3 K Teachers
My name is Nancy Fender and I am the 3k teacher for All Saint's PMO and the Assistant Director. I have been married for 35 years and have a 14 year old daughter named Sarah, an old cat, a slightly crazy young cat, and a big goofy Lab mix. I enjoy bargain hunting, Words with Friends, Scrabble and teaching 3 year olds. I am also the Nursery Director for my church for infants through 2 years of age. I teach simple Spanish phrases and words, writing, recognizing upper and lower case alphabet,comprehending 0-20, counting to 100 and shapes and more. I organize the weekly Bible lessons for 2k and 3k. One of my favorite scriptures is "Let the little children come to Me and do not forbid them!" Mark14:10. My philosophy in my class is that everything is a teaching opportunity and the best way to learn is by having fun!.
I am Mrs. Amanda. I am 27 years old, married, and have 3 children. They are ages 1, 4, and 7. This is my first year teaching 3K at All Saints’ PMO. I am very excited about this upcoming year. Although this is my first year at All Saints, this is not my first time in a teaching position. This past year, I was employed with Florence School District 1, as a permanent substitute. I have worked with children up to 6th grade, including special needs children. I absolutely love teaching!
2 K Teachers
My name is Ginny Adams. This is my first year, here at All Saints' PMO, and I am so excited to embark on this new journey with new co-workers and the awesome students in Mrs. Ginny's Silly Sea Buddies Class. I am the mom of two, Kiefer (9), and Mary Cambell (7). I have been married to Chris for 14 years. My family and I are very active members at Lebanon Freewill Baptist Church, and my husband and I teach the 1st-3rd grade class there. I enjoy anything outdoors, my two dogs Briar & Sydney, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy the beach, the lake, and Red Sox Baseball. Most importantly, I love to teach and spread God's word.
My name is Jennifer Carter and I am so excited to be teaching the 2K Farm Buddies Class this year! I graduated from Francis Marion University in 2004 with a BBA in Marketing. How did I end up teaching 2K? Well, about 4 years ago, I became a stay at home mom. In the past few years, God has truly blessed my family and laid a different path on my heart. I am a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church, where I serve in our children’s ministry on a preschool rotation. In the past few months, the Lord has been softly calling me to serve in other ways, and when the opportunity to work here presented itself, I jumped in! My husband and I have two children. Kullyn is almost 3 and will also be attending school here. Logan will be 9 years old in December and is a student at Carver Elementary. I am so grateful for the opportunity to get to know your kids and watch them grow and learn this year!
