Toddler Teachers

Ms. Annie Chiavario - Monday-Friday Room 104 - Toddler Lead Teacher

I have been married to my husband for 43 years and we have two children and three grandchildren. I have an Associates degree in Early Childhood Education and have worked with the toddlers at FLP since 1999. When I am not at school I enjoy cooking, quilting, baking and spending time with my grandchildren.

I love teaching at FLP and have worked in both of the toddler classrooms since I started in 2021.  I am working on a degree in Physical Therapy and love to hang out with friends on the weekends and to travel.

Cobi Jones - MWF Toddlers Room 104 & Toddler Assistant/Floater

I currently work with the Toddler classes on MWF with Ms. Annie.  I am also the floater helping out through the building to be extra hands in the mornings and to complete special projects for the preschool.  I am currently in school working towards a degree in Child Psychology.  I love to spend time with my nephews and family on the weekends and to watch basketball with my father.

I enjoy working with the toddlers and getting all those sweet hugs.  I have two children and live in Collierville. My family has attended Faith Lutheran Church for over 20 years. When I am not at school, I love to shop and spend time with girlfriends.

"My name is Jessica and I am the toddler teacher here at Faith and have been for several years. I have a Bachelor's in Child Development from the University of Memphis (Go Tigers Go!). There, I also studied and minored in Sociology. I have been working alongside families and children since I was 18 years old. I love being a teacher and having the opportunity to watch these babies grow!" 


Kourtney Parks - Monday-Friday - Room 105 - Toddler Assistant

I moved here from Oklahoma. I have my Early Childhood Certification and recently completed the TECTA training for the State of Tennessee.  I love these babies because they bring me so much joy! In my free time I love to go driving and to laugh with family and friends.

I am a former FLP graduate.  I love that I have come back to teach in a school I once attended. I am currently in college studying psychology.  I love learning about how the brain works. In my spare time I study, love to be with friends and family and enjoy listening to music.
