Meet our Teachers
Emily Kammerer, Lead Teacher
Emily has been teaching at St. Matthew Community Preschool for more than ten years. Before starting her teaching career at the school, she spent three years at the Cardinal Club in Lewiston and many years volunteering in preschool and kindergarten classrooms.
Emily's favorite part about teaching is when she gets to see the "light bulb" in the kids' minds, click on. Whether they remember something she taught them yesterday or even two weeks ago, the feeling is rewarding.
Polly Johnson, Teacher Aide
Polly is starting her first year teaching at St. Matthew Community Preschool. She and her family have been living in the St. Charles Community for more than 10 years. Polly has several years of experience working with children through her work at the St. Charles Childcare Center and the Dover Eyota School District.
Polly says she looks forward to watching the preschoolers learn, play, grow new friendships and develop their independence.
