Lisa Johnston

Preschool Team

My name is Lisa Sandoval Johnston and I am a lead float teacher here at The Vail Child Development Center.  I was raised in Minturn in a large Christian family. I began teaching children through church at the age of 18.  I have been married for 24 years to Paul and we have been blessed with two wonderful young men Stephen, 18 and Jeremiah, 20.

I have been working in early childhood education for 36 years and went to work as a para/preschool assistant when my son Stephen started Kindergarten.  As the years passed on I took early childhood classes at CMC and received my Lead Teacher certification.  I have worked in both private and public schools.

I believe working with children is one of the greatest gifts a person can give.  I love partnering with parents in building the foundation of love in Christ, in every child that has been placed in our care.
