February 2019 Teacher Spotlight

Monica Hirons, Koalas’ Assistant Teacher

“Hi, my name is Monica Hirons and I have been working at The Little Lamb Christian School since January 2019. I have worked with children, in some capacity, for the greater part of my life. However, The Little Lamb is the first preschool that I have worked at.”

“I attended public school Kindergarten through 4th grade and then was homeschooled with the Abeka curriculum for the reminder of my elementary and high school years. I graduated from Ivy Tech Community college with a degree in Hospitality Administration and I am a certified Pastry Chef! For the past few years I’ve worked at and helped open some of Indianapolis’s top restaurants and bakeries.”

“I married my sweetheart on October 14th 2018 and decided that is was time for me to leave the food industry and work with children again. I am the oldest girl and second oldest of a family of 8 kids, with ages ranging from 25 to 5 years old! I’ve been around babies and children my whole life and have always enjoyed it.”

“I also enjoy reading, baking/cooking, traveling, and spending time with my husband and family. I have a huge sweet-tooth, so picking a favorite candy is hard! However, I’ve never been one to turn down dark chocolate. My favorite music is hymns. I walked down the aisle on my wedding day to “In Christ Alone”. I love when music is more than just a catchy tune and has lyrics that edify and bring joy! Something that most people don’t know about me is that I’ve made desserts on live television and have worked alongside world-renowned chefs.”

“I love working with children because-what’s not to love! I love seeing their young minds grow and their personalities develop. You can count on children to give you quite the “roller-coaster” ride of emotions but they are such an amazing gift from God. One thing that I’ve really enjoyed about working at the Little Lamb is being surrounded by Christian women. Having a God-centered school creates such a peaceful and encouraging environment, even when things are hectic!”

“My favorite bible verse is John 15:15 ‘I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.'”

We are so blessed to have you be a part of our Little Lamb team! Thank you for all that you do!
