Ms. Jeny
Ms. JenyPre-K PM Teacher / Four-Year-Old Co-Teacher
Hello, I’m Jeny Marshall, and I have the pleasure of teaching Pre-K Giraffe class five days a
week. With six years of preschool teaching experience in the Eagle area, I find immense joy in
our days filled with songs, games, exploration, fun, and learning about Jesus.

Residing in Meridian with my husband, John, and our two children, Clark (15) and Amaya (12), I’ve been a proud Idaho resident for over thirty years. Raised in Boise with my parents and an
older sister, my upbringing was deeply connected to early education. My father, a retired
Christian minister and hospital chaplain, and my mother, a retired preschool teacher, instilled in
me a passion for this field. Growing up, my mom’s classroom felt, and now, I’m thrilled to carry
on the tradition of early childhood education in our family.

Having graduated from Boise State in 2003 with a BA in Communications, I am enthusiastic
about creating lasting memories with your child!

Ms. AnnThree-Year-Old Teacher
Greetings! I’m Ann Kroeker, and while I may be new to Idaho, I’m certainly not new to the world of teaching. With 24 years of experience under my belt, I have a deep love for education. My expertise lies in Child Development, and I’ve served as an Assistant Director. For the past seven years, I dedicated my efforts to being a Kindergarten Reading Intervention teacher until our recent move to Idaho. Now, I’m excited to be back in the preschool teaching environment.

On the personal front, my husband and I are kept on our toes by our three teenagers: Jaden (18), McKenzie, and Kayla (16). They are thoroughly enjoying the adventures that Idaho has to offer. Personally, I find joy in tending to my small chicken farm and gardening alongside my kids.

As we embark on the school year at Eagle’s Wings, I am eager to work with your child. These early years are not only crucial but also immensely enjoyable. Here’s to a fantastic year ahead!

I am Annabelle Lazzarini and excited about working with your children.  I developed a passion for working in child education after spending years volunteering in the classrooms of my two daughters.  In 2011, I was hired as a teacher assistant in a kindergarten class.  God then opened a door for me to join the staff of a Christian preschool at a church my family was attending.  In 2017, my husband Mark, our two daughters, and I relocated to Idaho.  I am so happy that I will be at Eagle’s Wings Preschool for my tenth year of teaching, and I get the opportunity to introduce your children to the love and hope that is in Jesus Christ.
Ms. Meg
Ms. MegFour-Year-Old Assistant Teacher
Hi, my name is Meg Miller. I am one of the teachers at Eagle’s Wings Preschool. I have worked at the preschool for eleven years and have enjoyed being a part of our littlest ones’ lives. Teaching has always been a large part of my life. I received my BA in Elementary Education at Washington State University in 1995. During and after college I worked for a daycare before moving to Idaho where I began work in the Twin Falls School District in the Gifted and Talented Program and later as a Sixth-Grade teacher. After both of my children were born, my husband and I moved to Eagle for the positive qualities we admired in the area. My family and I have now lived in Eagle for nearly 18 years and continue to enjoy the city. We have been very involved in the school system and community and feel very fortunate to call Eagle our home.

Max“Happiness is a warm puppy.” – Charles Shultz
Hello! I’m Max, a four-year-old yellow Labrador Retriever, and I’m thrilled to be returning to Eagle’s Wing Preschool for my third year. My primary objective is to bring comfort, joy, and plenty of smiles to everyone I encounter. I absolutely adore wagging my tail and offering snuggles to anyone in need. The children at Eagle’s Wing Preschool hold a special place in my heart, and I’ve developed a fondness for their parents as well!

Aside from my time at the preschool, I actively volunteer at assisted living facilities, hospitals, libraries, the Idaho State Juvenile Detention Center, special events around the valley, and numerous schools. With over 200 visits under my vest, I’m always eager to spread love and hugs wherever I go. Nevertheless, my favorite place to spend time is undoubtedly Eagle’s Wing Preschool, where I can shower everyone with even more love and affection.

In my role as a therapy dog, my mission is crystal clear: to bring smiles, inspire kindness, and provide comfort to those in need. I’m proud to be a certified member of The Go Team Therapy Dogs – Idaho. For those interested in following my adventures, you can catch me on Instagram at @max_teamidaho.
