Some of her favorite places to be are in a garden, at a lake or ocean, at an art gallery and at the dinner table with friends and family.

Jodi Hogan
Jodi has been teaching preschool for the last seven years, but to be honest, she really hasn’t left the preschool realm since she was a preschooler because playing and being silly are her favorite things to do. She initially got a degree in psychology at St. Cloud State, but later went back to get her teaching license in special education and received her master’s degree. She and her husband, Dan have three children who are all in their teens.

Chris is an assistant teacher at Ridgewood Preschool.  She loves learning, laughing, and sharing the love of Jesus with the children. Chris graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the College of St. Benedict.  She went on to earn a certificate in lay ministry at the University of St. Thomas.  She’s walked in faith with children ages 3-16 at her church for the past 29 years.  Chris and her husband, Russ, have two teenage children. She’s beyond grateful for the joy and blessings experienced each day at preschool!

Klaire Lutz
Klaire has had a heart for children for as long as she can remember. She currently teaches 4th grade at Wayzata Meadow Ridge Elementary.

Klaire is looking forward to another great summer with Ridgewood Summer Camps. It’s going to be a blast!
