Mrs. Laura DeRosier has been with the program for 20 years.  She has 3 grown children and is waiting for grandchildren! She and her husband have been married for 38 short years.  Laura has a degree in Education and a Teacher Certification from Eastern Michigan University.  In her spare time (which, as an empty nester, there is a lot of) she enjoys reading, crafting, and sewing and just recently started to learn quilting.  She divides her time between Hartland and her cabin on Manistee Lake in Kalkaska. She is excited to have a great year before retiring this coming June!

Mrs. Jessica Pasienza has eight years of experience in early childhood and is in her fifth year of teaching. She has an elementary teaching certificate and an early childhood endorsement. She taught first grade for three years and a year of preschool before spending a few years at home with her two daughters. In her spare time she enjoys reading, being outside, and building/painting wood projects with her husband. Jessica is very excited to be on both the parent and teacher side of Hartland preschool this year and be working with all of your preschoolers! She looks forward to continuing with Hartland Consolidated Schools Preschool as a Teacher upon Mrs. DeRosier's retirement this June.
