“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr. Seuss

My name is Marta Pree and I feel so blessed to be teaching at Immanuel Schools. My husband and I have two beautiful daughters who currently attend Immanuel. We spend our free time traveling to sports events, driving to the beach, or snow skiing in the winter.

Here at Immanuel our First Grade is an amazing adventure in which the children are encouraged to find joy in learning. We write amazing stories, apply new math concepts, interact with others and learn about those in our past. We also explore different theories in science. What a great place to be! We approach each new challenge with the Biblical belief that, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. “ Phil 4:13
