Preschool Director Jaci Gloss

Mrs. Gloss’ passion for education began at a very young age as her favorite thing to do as a small child was to “play school”. She taught 4th, 7th and 8th grades prior to starting her family in 1995. Jaci was fortunate to “stay at home” with her three daughers for 14 years before coming back to the classroom in 2009. Mrs. Gloss is synodically trained and is rostered through the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. She has a Master of Education Degree from Northern Arizona University and holds a current Arizona K-8 teaching certificate with an Early Childhood Endorsement and a Reading Specialist Endorsement. Mrs. Gloss and her family have been members of Christ’s Greenfield Lutheran Church since 2002.
