 Ms. Amy: Director

Hello! My name is Amy Kellesvig and I am the director for Agape Christian Preschool. I was the on the Agape Christian Preschool Board of Directors from 2008 until 2014, when I took over the role of Director.  I am I lifelong member of the Mount Horeb Community and have been a member of Evangelical Lutheran Church since 1994.  My husband and I have two children at MHHS, both alumni of ACP, and still love to help out here!  I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with such amazing teachers and children each day. I look forward to spending many years here and building on the foundation that was established in May of 1990.


Ms. Wendy: Music Program

Hello, my name is Wendy Rasmussen, it is such a pleasure to share music with the children at Agape.  Music has always been an exciting and integral part of my life. Along with teaching music in public schools and teaching private piano and string lessons out of our home, it is a pleasure to have been teaching music at Agape Christian Preschool since September 2001.  Engaging young children in music through movement, playing instruments, singing, listening creative dancing, and more…is so much fun!  And beyond that, research shows that children show exponential growth both intellectually and psychologically when music, movement and language are integrated. I’m looking forward to a joyful and rewarding year of musical experiences with your children. Thank you for sharing your precious ones with us!

Preschool Teachers (3K)

 Ms. Jenelle:

My name is Jenelle Ollendick, and I have been teaching at Agape since 2007.  I am very passionate about offering a classroom filled with lots of love, laughter, and learning.  Watching each child blossom throughout the year in my classroom is simply wonderful!  Long ago, my own two children attended Agape.  Even though they are college school students, they both still talk about their Agape days with a smile.  It truly was a special time for them.  I am blessed now to be the teacher for your child, and I am thrilled to be a part of their school journey!

Ms. Katy

Hi! My name is Katy Seibel and I am so excited to be starting this Agape adventure with you!  This will be my second-year teaching at Agape, but my family has had a connection to this wonderful school for many years!  I first attended Toddler Time years ago with my oldest and happily watched all my children attend 3K and 4K, as well as a little substitute teaching.  I live in Mount Horeb with my husband and our four children.  I am so excited to be doing what I always said I would do when I grew up, be a teacher, and I couldn’t imagine a better place to do it!  I am very excited to be a part of your child’s school adventures!

4K Teachers

Ms. Anita:

My name is Anita Symons and I am the new 4K teacher at Agape Christian Preschool for the 2022-2023 school year.  I have been teaching 4K for the past 12 years in the Stoughton School District and am very excited to start my new adventure at ACP.  My husband, two children and I recently moved to Mt. Horeb from Madison but are originally from Dodgeville, so Mt. Horeb is very familiar to us. As a family, we enjoy biking, hiking, being outdoors and spending time together. We are excited to see all the wonderful things Mt. Horeb has to offer! I really enjoy working with 4K students and their families. The students are so eager to learn and try new things. I love watching them achieve their goals of building the biggest block tower or a new art masterpiece.  As a teacher, I feel it is my job to make sure that each child grows socially, emotionally and academically to become lifelong learners.

Ms. Cathy:

My name is Cathy Fountas and I am the assistant teacher for the 4K classes.  I have been teaching at Agape Christian Preschool since 2009.  My husband and I have a daughter and son who are both Agape alumni.  I am very excited to be part of our planned creative curriculum and I also love all of the unplanned and teachable moments too.  I truly believe that every child is a treasure and I consider it a gift to be part of their precious lives.
