Ms. Loria Santiful
Greetings and many Blessings,
My name is Loria Santiful and I am the Director at Emmanuel Lutheran CDC. I come to Emmanuel Lutheran with over 8 years in the Early Childhood Education field.
Prior to pursuing my career in Early Childhood Education, I served 4 years in the U.S. Army. After life in the Army, I began pursuing Early Childhood Education and received a Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education Administration as well as a Master’s in Teaching and Learning Technology.
I began my ECE career in a Christian Childcare Center, however I transitioned to the corporate Preschool setting after relocating from Dallas, TX to Virginia where I learned many useful tools for effectively managing a Preschool. After almost 3 years in the corporate Preschool setting, I am blessed to now be serving again in a Christian environment.
In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and 3 children as well as our nearby extended family members!
“Whatever work you do, do it with all your heart. Do it for the Lord and not for men” (Colossians 3:23).
