Meet our Staff!
My name is Shelly Swift.
I've been teaching preschool for a total of 15 years!
I live in Harrisburg with my husband, Dave and son, Charlie.
I am passionate about children, music, outdoors, paying it forward and being kind!
Two things about me, I've had brain surgery and I've attended 56 Dave Matthews Band concerts.
Some of my hobbies are camping & fishing with my family, traveling, golfing, dinner with girlfriends attending music concerts and organizing!
Hi, I’m Emily Stiegel. I’m very excited to be working with the four-year old students at Friendship Preschool this year! I have a degree in Music Education and have worked in early childhood programs and the public-school system. My husband, Joey, and I have lived in Canton for about a year, own two kitties, and are expecting a baby girl this Fall. My passions are music, children, family, friends, books, and traveling as much as I am able to.
Hi I'm Teisha Hart, my husband Geno and I have been married 22 years and have 4 girls with only one left at home. I am very thankful to have been working at CUMC for the past 5 years.

Hey everybody, my name is Melissa Anderson.    I'm married to my husband Jared for almost 12 years and I've got 3 kids (Espn 10, Mya 8, & Peyton 4). I've been a stay at home mom for almost 11 years and have also been doing daycare out of my home. My interests are anything involving sports and being active in our children's sporting activities. And our family LOVES the Chicago Cubs and we travel to Wrigley field every year to see them play. In our spare time outside of traveling to all our kids activities, I love reading and hanging out by the fire pit with our friends.
