Director/Owls Preschool Class Teacher                                                      Chipmunks Nursery Class Teacher

Hello everyone!
My name is Leeann Sigona-Hernandez, and I am the new Director/Lead Teacher at Faith Lutheran Nursey School. I have an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education and have 13 years' experience working with children from infant to ages 1-5. I also have had the opportunity to work with children and adults with disabilities.
I love to incorporate project-based learning in the classroom which I believe gives kids the opportunity to learn through play. I also love adding arts and crafts on a daily basis as well as story time and circle time. I'm firm believer that parent involvement is key in helping our students succeed. This along with teacher and parent communication can make difference in our students learning. My passion is to teach and more importantly to help make a difference in children’s lives. I'm excited for what the new school year will bring and excited to meet and work with all. 

Hello everyone!
My name is Linda Chan; the children call me “Miss Linda.”  I was first introduced to Faith Nursery School in early 2019 as a substitute, where I had the opportunity to experience the joy of interacting with children and families on an educational level.  In September 2019, I officially became the assistant teacher for the 4-year-old Kangaroo Class.  I enjoyed being around the Kangaroos, and it was very fulfilling to be able to nurture young children to get them prepared for kindergarten.  I am currently the co-teacher for the 3-year-old Chipmunks.
I am a graduate of Binghamton University.  I worked for three NYC medical centers for over 20+ years aiding patients and families in getting the care they need.  My primary patient populations were in Pediatrics and Mother and Babies, and any patients that walked through the door needing my assistance and emotional support. 
After moving to Syosset, I took a break from the healthcare systems to raise my two children.  Then I found Faith Nursery School, or you can say they found me, too.
I am very happy to re-join the wonderful staff at Faith Nursery School and look forward to meeting the blossoming minds that come through Faith's door.

Owls Assistant Teacher/Office Administrator

Miss Wendy has worn many hats while working at Faith for the past 29 years. She is currently the Office Administrator and the assistant teacher in the Owls classroom.
Wendy has worked with all age groups as assistant teacher, camp counselor, and camp director.

She is a reliable and dedicated worker, to both Faith and the children. She keeps calm and is always caring and nurturing.
Wendy has lived in the community for 37 years, has a grown daughter, and two grandchildren.

Chipmunks Assistant Teacher

Hi my name is Marie Hamlin.  I am currently the assistant teacher of the three-year-old Chipmunk class.  I have been working at Faith for about 8 years now, with a short break in between.  I worked for a scientific publishing company for 16 years before leaving to raise my son.
Upon returning to the workforce, I tutored elementary school students in math and became a 1:1 teacher aide for a second grade student for the entire school year.  I was also a class mom for a good portion of my son's elementary school grades, as well as an active member of the PTA.

I realized nursery school was where my heart was when I began working at Faith.  I am so privileged to be witnessing and sharing in precious moments and milestones in these students' lives.  I just love to teach, learn and discover with them.  It truly is a very special time in their lives, and I am happy to be a part of it.
