Spider Room Teachers

Blake Nelson

My name is Blake Nelson and I am teacher qualified and work in many classrooms at LBLC. I’ve been working here since the fall of 2010. I want to take the time to thank all of you for letting me play such an important role in your child’s lives! I am currently attending school in Minneapolis with the final goal of an elementary education teacher. Working with children has been a passion of mine since I was a teenager. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, outdoor activities, and spending time with my many animals at home! I am commonly filling in for lead/assistant teacher, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me!

Amy McGuire

I have lived in Hastings since 1997, and grew up in Cottage Grove (go Park!) I have two amazing girls one born in 1997 (Julia) and the other in 2001 (Jenna).
I have been working in the Hastings school district since 2011 as a Title One paraprofessional. I absolutely love working with students from Kindergarten to Fourth grade who just need a little extra piece of the puzzle in Language Arts and Mathematics. Before working at Pinecrest, I was at a small catholic school in Vermillion for six years. I worked in the Kindergarten room and then eventually school wide. I have my A.S. degree in Human Services from Inver Hills community college and just recently decided to go back to school to obtain my B.A. in Elementary Education. My girls keep me pretty busy including my eighty pound German Shepherd “Charming”. I also have an amazing group of friends who share my love of reading, scrapbooking, wine tasting and hiking. I look forward to getting to know you all and to continue to grow in my relationship with your children.

Schedules

Our Spider Room will offer a a time for your child to unwind from the school day, have fun with friends, and even get in some homework time.

Summer!

Summers are meant to be filled with fun and adventure! At Little Beginnings, we offer a school age program that promises just that. We make sure the kids are kept busy having fun, going on field trips, and sneaking in a little learning too.
