Three Year Old Teachers

Maurita Boehnlein
Three Year Old Teacher

I joined the St. Luke’s staff in 2005. I decided to teach preschool because I enjoyed the preschool years with my own children so much.   I have been teaching preschool for 14 years.   I honestly feel blessed to be able to do something I absolutely love!

Hello!  My name is Christy Parrish and I am delighted to be working in the 3's program.  As a returning St. Luke's teacher, I know what a special place this is!  I have been working with preschoolers for over 10 years, 4 of which I was a lead teacher at St. Luke's.  I have three of my own children as well.

Three Year Old Teacher

I first joined St. Luke's Preschool in 2009 as a parent. Two of our children attended the preschool program. They had the most caring and helpful teachers, and they were well prepared as they entered Kindergarten. I have subbed at the preschool for two years. I am happy to now be a full-time staff member of the St. Luke's preschool family. I look forward to helping your children grow throughout their preschool years.  

I attended VCU/MCV and received my BSN in 1989.  I worked as a pediatric nurse at MCV for nine years.  My husband and I  then moved to Delaware and then to Georgia where I worked in both a private practice and a hospital until the birth of my oldest daughter. We moved back to Richmond in 2003. I started working as a 4's assistant teacher in 2007 when my youngest daughter was in the 4's program.  My daughter, Katie, started attending St. Luke's in the 2 1/2 year old program and she just loved it.  I truly love working with children and have so enjoyed all the children, families, and the staff that I have come to know at St. Luke's!

I first came to St. Luke’s as a parent in 2000 with my daughter.  The following year, I enrolled my son in the nursery program, and I still refer to him as a “St. Luke’s Lifer!”  When he was in the JK program, I joined the staff (2005.)  I have worked as both an assistant teacher and a lead teacher.  I have a B.A. in History from West Virginia University.  At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Rick, and my two children Hannah and Zack.
