Meet our Staff:
4 Year-Old Teacher: Mrs. Jana Dixon 
My name is Jana Dixon. My husband, three kids, and I have lived in Canton for 6 years. I love teaching and having a front row seat in children's learning, growing, and recognizing their potential! 
I am the happiest when I am hiking, biking, gardening, creating, or making s'mores around the campfire with my family. One of my greatest joys is watching kids be kids!
3 Year-Old Teacher: Miss Gracie Fossum
Hello! My name is Gracie Fossum. I was born and raised in Canton and love our little community! I love anything outside and am always down for an adventure. Teaching children is my true passion in life, and I'm so excited to bring a fresh perspective to the preschool!
Preschool Assistant: Mrs. Sarah Woods 
Hello, My name is Sarah Woods. I originally grew up in Canton, good old class of 2001. (please don’t do the math, it will ruin the 27 years old illusion).  I spent many a nights cruising the “whip” singing to boy bands, back when both were still a thing.
After high school I attended Northern State University majoring in Secondary History Education. Instead of finding an illustrious career in education while in Aberdeen, I found love, marriage and babies. 18 years ago I married the love of my life, Ryan.  Together we are doing the best we can to raise 3 teen boys.  Levi, Zach, and Micah keep us both on our toes.
I love being part CUMC family and showing God’s love in the Canton Community.
