About Our Director

    My name is Julie Schroeder, and I am very excited to be the director of Little Hands!  I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from Concordia UniversityNebraska in 2001.  Upon graduation, I taught Fourth grade at St. Paul’s Lutheran Elementary in Concordia, MO.  I served at St. Paul’s for three years, after which time I married and relocated to Milwaukee, WI.  My experiences in Milwaukee allowed me to work with children and students in various settings outside the classroom.  I worked as an Admissions Counselor at Concordia UniversityWisconsin, and I also served as a nanny to four young children. 

    On behalf of Immanuel Lutheran Church and the Early Childhood committee, I welcome you to Little Hands.  We look forward to meeting you and your little one(s) and we pray God’s blessing upon our time together!
