    Preschool II Assistant Teacher

    Hi, my name is Judy Kolbe and I have been with Primrose since May of 2001. I have been in this field since 1992. I started at Children’s World at an on-site school before and after school program, for about a year. Then I moved to the Children's World center as a pre-kindergarten assistant teacher. When the position of lead teacher became available, I accepted the position and remained there until 1998 when I left the center to try an in-home center.

    In 2001 I came to Primrose and have worked as an assistant and lead teacher in the Early Preschool rooms and then I took the position of bus driver and support teacher where I get to meet all the children as I visit each of the rooms.

    Before working with children, I worked for a check printing company for 14 years. I started working with children to also help raise my own three children and learn how to help them succeed in their school and lives.

    I continue to learn from the children every day, and enjoy them very much!

    When I'm not working I enjoy camping and watching my grandkids sports games.

    Thank you for sharing your childrens’ lives with me!

    Member of the Primrose family since September of 2010.

    Hi, my name is Lin Gonzales. I have always had a deep love of children and have worked in child care and education since 1974. My first position was as a 3-year-old preschool teacher and cook. Since that start, I have worked in every position including bus driver, kindergarten teacher, infant nursery supervisor, and center director. I returned to the classroom because I missed being with the children. I am currently a closer in the older infant room here at Primrose.

    I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I also returned to school to take classes to become a child care center director. I still enjoy talking classes to help me stay current with fresh and new ideas!

    I was married 38 years before my husband passed away. We had one daughter together, but my husband had six children, so I am step-mom and step-grandmom to a large brood. My daughter has two children and I love being a grandmother. When I am not working or enjoying my large family I enjoy reading, camping and singing in my church choir.
