Laura Davis (K4)
“Welcome! I am Laura Davis and I serve as the K4 teacher. I’ve had the privilege to teach here at Little Lambs for the past 19 years. Everyday is an adventure as I help my young students experience the love of learning.
I graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. Since, I’ve had the opportunity to earn numerous additional college credits in the areas of Early Childhood, Literacy and Teaching the Gifted.
I am a member of the Wisconsin State Reading Association and have recently been appointed to the Early Childhood Literacy Committee within this organization. It is the mission of this committee to promote and advance early literacy development to families, schools and communities throughout the state of Wisconsin.
I am the mother of two daughters, Elizabeth (12) and Elaina (10). As most parents, I spend much of my free time involved in their school projects and extra curricular activities. We love to travel, are avid readers, enjoy music, and look forward to spending time at our cabin up north.”
Jamie Knies (2-3 Year Olds)
“My name is Jamie Knies. I am the teacher in the 2-3 year old classroom. I have been working at Little Lambs for the past six years. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown, Wisconsin. I enjoy working with the 2-3 year olds in my classroom. I love working on the beginning readiness skills, shapes, colors, social skills, and helping parents with potty training! It has taught me a lot in preparation for my own little ones.
I have been married to my husband, James, for almost 6 years. We are so excited to welcome our first little baby (boy) into the world in just a few short weeks! (March 2015). In my free time I love reading fun books, playing the piano and clarinet, and visiting my family in Michigan. I am very involved in my church in Waukesha, where I play the piano for our Sunday services. I am part of the church choir, and I enjoy singing Special Music for our worship services.”
