Our Teachers

Samantha Fredericks

“Mrs Fredericks” is the Teacher for both the Ducklings (2s) and Chickadees (3/4s) classes.

She is a graduate of Temple University with a degree in Early Childhood Education, but has been working with children for as long as she can remember, including a long association with children’s programs at the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville. 2019-20 is her seventh year teaching at LPP.

“Working with the LPP students and their families has been a great experience. I deeply enjoy being a constant in a child’s life, someone they can trust and learn from. I adore what I do and will always strive to give my students the best experiences possible.”

Jennifer Gladney

“Miss Gladney” has been a Pre-K teacher for over fifteen years, and 2019-20 is her seventh year at LPP as Teacher for the Owls (4/5s)  class.

A Lawrence Township resident her entire life, she has gone through elementary school, high school and then college here. She is a summa cum laude graduate of Rider University in 2006, with a dual degree in Elementary Education (K-5) and Dance, and holds a specialization degree in Early Childhood Education (P-3).

“We have something so special in common: your child. I believe I can strongly contribute to the development of young students, and to the meaningful outcomes that LPP provides for its students, families, and community. Never in childhood, or even as adults, should we stop playing or imagining. This is what I hope to bring daily to your child, along with many educational adventures at LPP.”

Jill Bearce

“Mrs. Bearce” is in her sixth year on staff at LPP, and this year begins as Teacher for the new Puffins class, as well as continuing to be Assistant Teacher for the Ducklings and Chickadees classes.

In 2017 she completed the Early Childhood Development program at Mercer County Community College and achieved her CDA certification.

Sharilyn Tel

“Mrs. Tel” joined LPP this year to be Assistant Teacher with  Miss Gladney in the Owls Classroom.

Mrs. Tel is a certified elementary teacher, and has three teen-agers (two in college in Washington state). We value the teacher/parent with that perspective on parenting!
