Heather Robért- Preschool Director
I live in Leesburg with my husband Matt and we have two sons. Ian is a Senior Marketing major with a concentration in Digital Marketing at James Madison University. Owen is a Junior at Tuscarora High School and plays on the lacrosse team. When I am not at preschool, I enjoy being in my kitchen experimenting with new recipes or spending time with friends and family exploring our wonderful town. I enjoy being on the water and during the summer you can find me at my happy place- the lake or beach. I also enjoy travelling especially going on cruises!
I am excited to begin my tenth year as a Preschool Director and my second year at Harmony. I enjoy coming to work each day and am blessed to have an amazing team of teachers and wonderful students and families. I look forward to all of the fun things we have planned over the next nine months and watching the children grow in confidence and independence.
Karen Cokain (Assistant Teacher 3’s)
I live in Leesburg with my husband, our three children and our dog. My children are young adults now with the youngest in his sophomore year of college.
I started out helping my children’s teachers during their elementary years. After three years of volunteer work with those teachers, I was hired by a preschool in Leesburg. I worked there as an assistant in one of the four-year-old classes for eight years. I was also the arts and crafts teacher for five of those years for both the three-year-old and four-year-old classes. I also assisted in a self-contained K-2 autism class for LCPS. I enjoy watching the children develop and grow throughout the year; discovering Gods world through their eyes is wonderful.
Jenn Dooley (Enrichment Assistant Teacher)
Julia Edwards (Assistant Teacher Pre-K 4’s)
I have lived in Hamilton for almost seven years now. My husband Erick retired from the Navy and we have three boys ages of, 30, 28 and 11 years old. Lucian lives in California with his wife and our 4 year old grandson Gavin. Cezar graduated from ODU with a Master Degree in Cybersecurity. Evan is a 6 grader at Blue Ridge Middle School. He is passionate about Math, Minecraft and Baseball. My favorite things to do are spending time with my family and friends, traveling and cooking.
I am grateful and excited to work with your children as Mrs. Fehr’s assistant in the Pre-K 4’s class, and am looking forward to helping them learn, grow, and succeed in their education.
Mary Fehr (Lead Teacher Pre-K 4’s)
I have eleven years of experience working with children in a preschool environment. I have held various positions over those years including Assistant Teacher, Teacher, Financial Administrator, and Assistant Director. In addition, I have served for twelve years on the Christian Education Committee at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. I am thrilled to be in the classroom and working one on one with our amazing students.
When my husband and I moved to Leesburg 31 years ago, it was a very different place. We have two beautiful children who continue to keep us very busy despite the fact that they are young adults. Our son, Adam, graduated from Christopher Newport University in January. He is currently working for Loudoun County Parks & Recreation. Our daughter, Amy, is a senior at George Washington University. She is a Bio-Medical Engineering major and was just accepted into the master’s program. Our most recent family member is a beagle puppy named Bailey. If your child is in my class, they will come home with all kind of entertaining Bailey stories. When I am not busy with my family, I enjoy crafting, reading, gardening, and spending quality time with my friends.
I have been truly blessed by the relationships I have built during my journey as an educator. I look ahead with anticipation and excitement for all that God has in store for the coming year.
Meghan Keeter (Lead Teacher 3’s)
I live in Hamilton with my three children. My oldest is Julia; she is 13 and a student at Blue Ridge Middle School. Jackie is 11 and a fifth grader at Kenneth W. Culbert Elementary School. My youngest is Ryan; he is 8 and in second grade at KWC also. Jackie and Ryan are alumni of Harmony Preschool and we loved our time here. We have a dog named Maple and a one-eyed tortoise named Milo. We love to read and spend time in the backyard. I love to cook for my family, practice yoga, and tend to my plants and pets. I have volunteered in my children’s classrooms, and I studied education in college. This is my first year at Harmony Preschool and I am so excited to get to know your little ones!
Leslie Morrissette (Lead Teacher Pre-K 4’s, Enrichment Teacher)
This is my second year, teaching at Harmony Preschool, and I am so grateful and appreciative to be part of such a talented team of women, as well as such giving and wonderful preschool families. My students make me laugh and smile every day, and my goal, in addition to teaching them new skills and continuing to build their confidence, is to do the same for them. Thank you for sharing your children with us!
Susan Pryes (Assistant Teacher 4’s)
I live in Hamilton with my husband John of 21 years, our two children John 16 and Kelly Mae 13 and our two dogs. They are both involved in sports so when we are not at a baseball tournament or tennis we enjoy hanging out at home.
This is my 7th year at Harmony Preschool. I have a BS in Business Administration from Pfeiffer University. I enjoy reading, playing games, and being outside. My favorite is watching the children’s faces light up when they learn something new and fun!
