Teachers: Macy Dudley and Jamie Overton

My name is Macy Dudley, I’ve been at LakeRidge for several years not only teaching in the preschool but also in our Children’s Ministry. I am native to Lubbock and graduated with a duel degree in Communications and Human Development & Family Studies from Texas Tech University.  I have been truly blesses by the children, families and co-workers I have gotten to know over the years. It’s going to be a great year!

I have loved my time at Lakeridge. I have been incredibly blessed  by the relationships I’ve made with my coworkers, the children and their parents. It has been a privilege to be a part of this program. 

Monkey Class Information

In the monkey class, we provide the structure that facilitates students to grow, learn, and have fun! Students are given opportunities to explore toys and participate in age appropriate projects and crafts. Some of our main objectives throughout the year is to set the foundation for learning phonics, shapes, colors, numbers, fostering a love for literacy, and learning about Jesus. We feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the children’s lives, and look forward to a fun filled year!
