Christy Vostrizansky
I began my teaching career at Corunna Public Schools teaching 1st and 2nd grade. In 2011, I started teaching at Prime Time Preschool.  I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and a Minor in Journalism from Oakland University.  I also have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Michigan State University and a Masters degree in Teaching from Marygrove College.  In 2015 I became Assistant Director at Prime Time and work alongside the director, Lynda Schoonover.  My daughters all attended Prime Time Preschool and we loved this amazing program, its philosophy and the dedication to providing children with a positive first school experience

Beth Cook
After receiving a B. A. and teaching certificate from Alma College in 1967, I began my career in education teaching kindergarten. Once I had raised my three children, I returned to teaching in a preschool called Sunshine House in Lansing, MI from 1991 through 1993. Prime Time Preschool opened in 1994 and I taught there for two years before my husband and I left the area in 1996. We returned in 2000 and I resumed teaching at Prime Time from that time to the present.

Maria Cook
This is my 23rd year at Prime Time Preschool and I am the Monday-Wednesday-Friday p.m. head teacher. I also currently work (part time) for Clinton County RESA, our intermediate school district, in the early childhood area where I am the Great Start Parent Liaison. I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a teaching certificate in elementary education. My continuing education was done at Michigan State University. My teaching career began at St. Mary's School in Westphalia where I taught 5th grade. From there, I moved on to Waverly Community Schools for 8 years where I taught both 2nd grade and Kindergarten. In the past, I have taught parenting classes for Clinton County Counseling Center and worked for Sparrow Clinton Hospital as the Safe Kids Coordinator. I have two grown daughters who both attended Prime Time.

This is my first year teaching at Prime Time Preschool. My daughter Zoe went for two years and is now a first grader. My youngest, Nora, attended last year, and I am very excited to get to have Nora in my class for her last year in preschool! I am an elementary certified teacher with a degree from Michigan State University and my Masters in curriculum and teaching from MSU too! Go Green! I have taught in East Lansing, Michigan Center, Australia, Malaysia, and online too! I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Prime Time!

I have been Director and head teacher at Prime Time Preschool for 20 years. After receiving a B.A. and an Elementary Teaching Certificate from Adrian College, I began my career in teaching third and fourth grade in the Pickney Community School System. I completed work on my masters in Education at EMU. When my youngest of three sons entered first grade I taught preschool at Sunshine House Preschool in Lansing. We opened Prime Time in 1994 and I have been teaching there even since.

Lynn Stumpfig
I started teaching at Prime Time in 1999. I graduated from Hope College with a B.S. in Biology. I become acquainted and subsequently, fell in love with Prime Time's program when my daughters attended.

Marin Whitten
I graduated from Northern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Preschool and Family Life Services. The year we moved to DeWitt my husband and I enrolled our middle son in Prime Time. Soon thereafter, I fell in love with the warm and caring environment. Our younger two children went on to attend and I later served on the Prime Time Board as a Member at Large. After spending time raising our four children, I returned to teaching. I love working with preschoolers and firmly believe in the philosophy at Prime Time. I am pleased to be a part of such a quality program.
