Amy Welzien

3K Lead Teacher

Creating an environment that’s focused on learning, fellowship, fun and faith is the primary goal for the 3K classroom.

Daily 3K learning and socialization opportunities include worship time, circle time, center activities, art activities, book looks, music, movement, library time and chapel. The class day is a balance of individual, small group, and large group experiences incorporating many types of activities. Our 3K classroom is blessed to integrate technology through an iMac, several ipads and a SMARTboard. The 3K school year includes highlights such as a visit to Witte’s Vegetable Farm, our Noah’s Ark Costume Party, Fall Fun Day at Cedar Creek Park, Thanksgiving Celebration, Early Childhood Christmas Service, Happy Birthday Jesus Party, field trip to Home Depot, We Love Jesus Valentine’s Day Party, Easter Blessings Egg Hunt, Muffins with Mom, Drop off with Dad, field trip to Mequon Nature Preserve, and Springtime End of Year Picnic.

Mrs. Welzien graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in education, and has more than 14 years of teaching experience. Her family includes her husband Jim and daughter Megan, who attended First Immanuel Lutheran School.

"I am blessed to spend my days surrounded by smiles. When students come to First Immanuel they bring such joy and enthusiasm. Their love for Jesus is evident. They know Him and they know He leads our family here at FILS. “
