Department Head Ellie E.
Our Team

Meet our Team Director:
Miss Ellie


Hello, my name is Ellie and I am the Team Director of Kindergarten. I have taught children at A Child’s Touch since 2014.

I graduated from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood Education in 2011. I also received my Lutheran Teaching diploma. While attending Concordia University, I was a member of the CUNE softball team and was also involved in Mission Minded Students. I taught at St. John’s Lutheran School in Denver for one year in the toddler class. I also taught preschool for two years at Immanuel Lutheran School in Loveland, Colorado. The teachers in my class meet all state qualifications and continue to attend trainings in order to further their education so that they stay relevant and progressive in the classroom. These teachers are trained in first aid and CPR and have completed the necessary ECE classes.

I grew up in the rural farming town of Early, Iowa with three older brothers and two very patient and active parents. Growing up on a farm, I also grew up with a wonderful experience of the outdoors. I love being involved in nature and exploring all the beauty that God has given to us. My husband Brett and I welcomed our first baby, a boy named Landon, into our family in April 2016 and in 2019 we welcomed twin girls! Brett is a Sergeant for Adam’s County Sherriff’s Office and has been with ACSO since 2005.

Teaching children is not a job for me but a passion. I am blessed to be at a facility that allows me to not only share God’s love with the children but to also find inventive, fun ways for them to understand His love that is demonstrated throughout the Bible and in their own lives in order to make their Biblical knowledge more concrete. I am also very passionate about missions. I have taken many mission trips since 2005, including working in Mexico, California, and Mississippi; I have also been to Haiti five times with my dad. I love sharing that passion with the children so that they can see that they can make a difference! It is truly a blessing to see the children understand that they are unique and created by God and to see their God-given gifts flourish in our creative environment!

I want each day to be an adventure that fosters learning through hands-on experiences. Each year I look forward to all the wonderful and new accomplishments that the children will experience in kindergarten. My goal is to excite the student’s imagination and desire to learn through positive play and unique activities in an overall fun, safe, and enjoyable environment. Children will have years of schooling that can often be stale and scripted and in our kindergarten we want to offer students one last year of exiting learning experiences that will allow them to thrive in future academic endeavors.

I work with an amazing team of teachers and together we use creative hands-on experiences to foster learning. Preparing the students for first grade is the focus as the children engage in activities that elevate their academic, social, spiritual, and emotional abilities. Teacher interaction is paramount within the classroom as we as educators are actively involved in helping the kids learn, play and find confidence in themselves.

My team and I are so looking forward to meeting your family and working to make kindergarten a memorable experience that empowers your child to have a successful, fun first year of elementary school.

Sincerely,

Ellie Eskam
