Sheila Burfield
Director and Lead Classroom Teacher


Sheila holds a Bachelor of Arts in Child Development from Concordia University, St. Paul.  She began her early childhood career with Precious is the Child in 1999, and also worked in a daycare setting and as a Head Start teacher, before returning to Precious is the Child in 2013.  She thoroughly enjoys the preschool setting and sharing God's Word with children and families.  Sheila is an avid walker and enjoys yoga, biking, singing, and reading.  She and her husband recently moved from Chatfield to Rochester and together enjoy hiking, biking, and relaxing at home. But their favorite activity is to spend time with their grown children.








 

Lauren Plagenz
Assistant Teacher


Lauren holds her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Secondary Education from Martin Luther College. She is a licensed educator in Minnesota, Nebraska, and Ohio, and has been teaching for the past five years. Last year was the only year she hasn't taught full-time as she and her husband welcomed their first baby in July 2018. Lauren can often be found with a cup of tea and a book when she's not teaching or chasing her little one around. She and her husband, Peter, both enjoy time with their little family, walking around downtown Rochester, and hiking and camping as often as they can.
