   Mrs. Jessica Wolfe
Learning Center Director & Part-time Preschool Teacher

As a teacher I believe…

  • every child is a gift from God
  • every child should hear the good news of Jesus—He is our Savior from sin and death.
  • every child has a desire to learn.
  • all children are unique in the way they learn and interact with the environment around them.
  • education must be meaningful.
  • integration of subjects and technology is important for learning.
  • in teaching to the whole child—academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

I graduated from Martin Luther College (MLC) in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in education. I have taught at preschools and elementary schools since then. I have a Minnesota Teaching License that I activly mantain.   I am married to Pastor Ryan Wolfe and we have four children. I enjoy crafting and outdoor activities with my family.

Mrs. Amanda Ofstie

Toddler Curriculum Development & Classroom Lead

We are blessed to have Mrs. Amanda Ofstie on our staff as curriculum developer for the toddler program at Little Lambs and lead teacher in the Toddler 2 classroom. Mrs. Ofstie graduated in December 2013 from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota with a degree in Early Childhood Education. Mrs. Ofstie moved to Mandan in June 2014 to serve as one of our first lead teachers and curriculum developers. Her enthusiasm and love for children is clear from the first moment you meet her. In October of 2016 she married Joshua Ofstie.

Mrs. Ofstie is an avid runner and enjoys music, particularly singing. Her interest in music is an asset for the children she teaches, as the children in her room often enthusiastically sing and dance - sometimes loudly enough to be heard in the hallway!
