Who We Are!

At St. Paul, we have been offering quality, Christian preschool programming in Kodiak for over 30 years. We are very proud of this and we hope it gives you peace of mind. Our director and teachers are experienced, and they teach and love your children as if they are their own!

 


 

April McBride 

Director 

 

April had an amazing childhood growing up in Kodiak, and moved back with her husband to raise their girls.  April is a  thoughtful, creative, motivated, caring person and natural leader who enjoys adventures with her family and is passionate about Early Childhood Education.   

 

Tamie Everton Fogle 

Assistant Director 

I was a counselor, teacher, and professor. As a volunteer in my community and state, I have been involved in a world-wide educational historical group, on the Board of Directors for the teacher’s union, pre-school, and local public radio, leader for a Girl Scout troop, a lifeguard at camp, a musician in a number of ensembles, and part of the regular crew backstage for the Art’s Council. Now that I have to take a little more time to rest between activities for my health, I still look for opportunities to give back through sewing, painting, writing, gardening, and similar hobbies that still allow me to pass on the joy to others while using my brain and talents to their fullest. Working at St. Paul’s is allowing me to utilize all of these experiences. Plus the knee tackle hugs make me smile every day!
