Hello, my name is Marilyn Westphal, or Mrs. W as the children call me. I have been with Good Shepherd Preschool since it opened its doors in 1996. I started as a Teacher’s Aide and have been a Teacher the last several years. My husband, Mike, works for Cargill-Nutrena Feed Company. My oldest son Josh is a 1st grade teacher in Zumbrota. Aaron is in his final year at St. Cloud, studying Environmental Studies. George, my cat, rules the house. It has been a joy to help start Good Shepherd Preschool and have the opportunity to teach here. I have enjoyed seeing former students as they grow up. Teaching the ABC’s and colors are important, but teaching about God’s love through prayer, Bible Stories and music is the most important gift we can offer them as they begin their education.
