My name is Annie Stroud, and I serve as Interim Director.  I previously was a teacher of the three-years olds for several years. I have been at Bethlehem either as a parent or teacher for 12 years. Before teaching at Preschool, I taught First Grade in Forsyth County.  I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Brad, for 12 years.  We live in Advance with our three amazing kids.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family.  I am excited for another year of fun and learning at Bethlehem Angels Preschool!

Teacher, Three-year olds

I am excited to be teaching this year at Bethlehem Angels Preschool in one of the wonderful three-year olds classrooms.  I am a native of Davie County and have lived on or “off of” Redland Road in Advance, as have multi-generations of my family.

Being a Mom to three adult children and a first-time “Shae Shae” (Grandma) are my biggest blessings in life.

While I am new to Bethlehem Angels, I am have been an early educational educator for nineteen years.  Watching children grow and accomplishing new learning skills in a school where God is the center of it all makes my teacher’s heart happy.

I feel very blessed to be a part of a fabulous teacm of educators and staff here at Bethlehem Angels.  God opened a door at just the right time, which is always His right time . . . “Thanks Be To God.”

This is my first year teaching at Bethlehem Angels Preschool, and I am excited about helping young minds prepare for kindergarten.
