I am very excited about being the Director of Light the Bay Preschool this year and wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Amber Urias. I have been married to the man of my dreams for sixteen years and have four beautiful children. I have been teaching for fifteen years with experiences that include preschool through eighth grade. I currently have my BA degree in psychology with an emphasis on marriage and family therapy and am certified in early childhood education. I love the Lord and am passionate about following Him and the call that He has placed on my life. I know that God has AMAZING things planned for us this year and I am looking forward to being able to get to know you and your child.  

I am very excited about this opportunity that the Lord has provided. I have been teaching for many years including preschool, special education and local before and after school programs. I have been married for twenty-five years, and have two beautiful daughters, and a very handsome grandson. I believe that God formed each child in His image with a specific plan in mind. I see a glimpse of God’s reflection in each and every one of the children here at Light the Bay Preschool. I am looking forward to getting to know all of the children and their families.
