School Director and Floating Teacher
Lisa loves Our Savior School because of the joy I see and feel when I interact with the children and the families. What I have begun to see here at Our Savior is the feeling of “family”. Teachers who are excited when children arrive in the morning or how staff make sure that families are informed about what is going on here are all things that help bring us together as a “family”.
Favorite Bible Verse: Again Jesus spoke to them saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

She decided to go back into the classroom to spend more time with the children and her family. Favorite Bible Verse: Be strong and courageous.

Morning Aide – Lamb Room
Vicki Bradley has been a member at Our Savior’s for over 40 years and a member of the church choir for over 30 years. She started volunteering in the school in the spring of 2000, and has since become a preschool aide. She has enjoyed being able to meet and know so many children and their families. She explains, “The best part of being on staff at OSS are the hugs from the children. It is so rewarding to watch the children grow up and see how God leads them in their lives.” Outside of school, she enjoys knitting and makes many afghans, hats, mittens and other items for gifts. The Bible verse she clings to is Matthew 28:20, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.” It reminds me that I always have a friend and am never alone, no matter what life deals to me.
