Preschool/Daycare Staff

Tiffany Amoriello, Director/Teacher

Hello! I am Ms. Tiffany I would like to take this time to tell you a bit about myself. I grew up in Poynette and just currently moved back here to raise my three children with my husband of 10 years, Nick. We have Kamryn who is 7, Mason who is 5, and Taylor who is 3. Oh, and I can’t forget our yellow lab Bailey!!! We love to be outdoors and enjoy spending time up north at our cabin. I have worked in daycare for almost 15 years. I started as a school aged teacher and through the years I have taught infants and toddlers, pre-k, and the last ten years I was doing in home daycare to be with my children. This move to St. Peter’s has been such a blessing. The children are wonderful, and I can’t say enough about the staff. Everyone here has welcomed me with open arms and I hope together with all of you, the staff, and the church we are able to continue the high quality of care that you have received this far! I look forward to what God has planned for me here!
