Meet the Staff

Mrs. Bree

Director

Brianne Weishaar, a.k.a. Mrs. Bree, has been in education for over 23 years. She worked as a teacher and an administrator, graduated Cum Laude from Capital University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion and completed the honors program, and attended The English Nanny and Governess School and became a certified governess. She hopes to begin working on a Master of Divinity degree within the next year.

Bree loves to learn and values education. She believes that knowledge is one of the keys to a happy and productive future. Her goal is to pass that on to every child she meets… for each child to learn to crave new knowledge, to attempt to fully grasp what they have already been taught, and to share what they know with others. Knowledge, however, is useless without a firm foundation from which it can grow. She was fortunate enough to have been blessed with a love for the Lord and strong Christian base from which that love could be nurtured and grow. Faith is the most important key for guiding a child down the paths of right and good. It is her calling in life to allow God to use her as a source of knowledge, hope, and guidance for all souls, especially children, who seek His grace and love.
