I am Amanda Metzger and excited to be Ms. Michelle’s assistant teacher for the sixth consecutive year. I am a true native of Idaho, born and raised in Eagle, Idaho and I currently live in Star with my husband, Dustin, and our two boys, Graem (9) and Carson (7).
Our family life is very busy and exciting. During the spring and fall, I am a proud soccer mom and also a soccer wife and enjoy spending six nights a week on the soccer fields, where I cheer on my husband and boys from the sidelines. As a family, we also love camping, fishing, and hunting for frogs. I am an avid gardener and find great satisfaction in canning and preserving my harvests. I love the great outdoors and the beauty of nature that is found all around us.
My husband and I have a home renovation business and we are always working on a project. I am masterful with composing “honey-do lists.”
Ms. AnnabelleFour-Year-Old Co-Teacher
I am Annabelle Lazzarini and excited about working with your children. I developed a passion for working in child education after spending years volunteering in the classrooms of my two daughters. In 2011, I was hired as a teacher assistant in a kindergarten class. God then opened a door for me to join the staff of a Christian preschool at a church my family was attending. In 2017, my husband Mark, our two daughters, and I relocated to Idaho. I am so happy that I will be at Eagle’s Wings Preschool for my tenth year of teaching, and I get the opportunity to introduce your children to the love and hope that is in Jesus Christ.
