Gabby Johnson
(Assistant Director)

I have been blessed to be a part of the Administration here at StoneBridge since the school began in 2012. I enjoy being able to work alongside a professional and loving staff that seek to serve the Lord using their gifts of teaching and nurturing young children. Each year, it is always so exciting to meet our new students, welcome back our returning students, and to see how much our students grow emotionally, spiritually, socially, and intellectually throughout the year. In my free time, my husband and I keep busy with our friends, family, church, small group, discovering new restaurants, weekend trips, and taking care of our “fur baby”, our dog Tonka.

I feel so blessed to be at StoneBridge as the Office Manager and to be a part of this Christ-centered school. The students, parents, and staff are such a joy to work with! I am thankful for the teamwork that the Lord has established here between school and home. Every morning, it is great to see the bright smiles, hear the friendly hellos, and feel the enthusiasm and energy that our students bring to school. It is wonderful to see God’s Word in action and how our students are growing in Him. I love Jesus and it is the desire of my heart to faithfully serve Him each day. In my free time, I enjoy reading, fellowship time with family and friends, and shopping. It is a privilege to be in the Lord’s service here at StoneBridge and to have the opportunity of working with our school family!

(Administration Assistant / Lead Teacher)

I’m so excited for another great year at StoneBridge as part of our Administration team.  During my six years here, I have taught the 2 and 3 year olds and later our Transitional Kindergarten Class.  I attended Cal State Fullerton, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Adolescent Development.  I am extremely blessed to be a part of my home church where I actively serve and participate in the greeting and worship teams. In my spare time, you can either find me at Disneyland or cheering on the Anaheim Ducks.  I am looking forward to meeting and working along with each family to make this year the best that it can be.

Zorana La Blanc Calloway
Red Room Teacher (3’s and Young 4’s) and Cooking Enrichment Teacher

This year, I have the pleasure of taking on a few roles here at StoneBridge.  I will be the opening teacher in the morning for all Early Bird Children (6:30-7:45am) and, throughout the day, it will be my joy to teach in the Red Room.  Lastly, I will be cooking up fun with the Enrichment Cooking Class. It has been my calling to effectively help children bloom in the early stages of their lives.  This will be my twenty third year teaching young children.  I have had the experience of teaching children from infants to Pre-K.  It has truly been fulfilling working with them all.  God has blessed me to join StoneBridge for a fifth year.  God has led me here to continue the growth of my own relationship with Him through the experiences and faith of others that I come in contact with.  Also, it is here where I have observed children take on such a love for God.  As a teacher, it is amazing not only to teach children the basic social and fundamental skills that they will use for the rest of their lives but to be a person that can share the Word of Jesus to new young minds and helping children so they can grow in the love of God and develop their own special relationship with Him.

(School “Center” / Art Enrichment Teacher)

I am excited to say that this will be my fifth year here at StoneBridge.  It is such a blessing to be able to work in a Christ-centered environment where I am able to teach children about God.  I have worked in a preschool setting for the past ten years and have earned a Child Development Certificate.  I am currently attending college to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts as my goal is to be an Art teacher.  I am so thankful to be able to use my artistic talents in preparing for school events as well as teaching the Art Enrichment Class.  The scripture that I like to read is about the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18).  I have it posted on my wall at home to remind myself to be prepared for the day by putting on God’s Armor.  My favorite things to do are going to the beach, mountains, Montana, and Hawaii, to bake cookies and eat the cookie dough, and spend time with my family and friends.

I am delighted to be the Kindergarten teacher and part of the family here at StoneBridge Christian Academy.  My decision to become an educator stemmed from my desire to make a positive difference in the lives of young children.  It has been my passion to help all my students grow and learn both academically and socially.  I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development.  I then continued my education at Hope International University, where I obtained my Teaching Credential and Master’s Degree in Education. I have been serving the Lord for over thirty years and have been involved in the Children’s Ministry at my church.  The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful family.  I am married and we have one incredible daughter.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, dancing, cooking, and spending time with my family.

Capri Wickersham
Red Room Teacher (3’s and Young 4’s) and Full Day Teacher

I am filled with joy to be teaching in the Red Room this year!  My foundation was built on knowing God and making Him known.  I remember my preschool years in Sunday School and learning about God’s love for me and my desire to want that forever.  I stayed involved in youth groups and became a cheerleading coach for three year olds.  This is where I found my love for leading, coaching, and teaching children.  I then went to school for Early Childhood Education where I learned that life fundamentals are developed between the ages of 0 to 5 years old.  I couldn’t believe how important those young years were!  God has put it on my heart to teach His truth along with those fundamentals.  I am filled with gratitude knowing I can help raise Kingdom Kids.  In my free time, I enjoy being involved in Children’s Ministry, Bible Study, and having lots of family time with camping and fishing.  I am truly excited to see what this year has to bring, giving all the glory to God!

I am extremely excited to be a teacher in the Purple Room this year!  This is my first year working at StoneBridge and I have been impressed by how welcoming everyone is and could not be more grateful to be here!  I am a fully qualified preschool teacher and currently am taking a few courses each semester to continue working toward my goal of a degree in Early Childhood Education. I have two children and, once I became a mom, realized the importance of developing a closer relationship with our Lord.  I am involved with my church and attend a Bible Study which has helped me build a sense of community there.  Not only do I work here at StoneBridge to share the love of Jesus with my students, I am happy to have Him be the center of my everyday life as well!  Besides enjoying spending time with my family, I love crafting, throwing parties for my girls, painting murals, cake decorating, and am a Disney fanatic! I am looking forward to working side by side with an amazing team of teachers and getting to know my students and families this year.

I am so excited to start the new school year!  I have been with StoneBridge for six months, first teaching in TK and now in Kindergarten.  I have been so blessed not only by the amazing families, but the godly women that I get to work with.  I attended college at Lubbock Christian University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and earned a teaching certificate for California as well as Texas.  I have taught in a private Christian environment for two years and first grade in public school for two years.  I believe that school is a place for children to not only learn and grow, but to become good people that love each other and Christ, our Lord. Each child is unique and special and I love being a teacher because I can be there to witness their growth and learn from them.  I am engaged to a wonderful man and will be married this coming June.  Our favorite things to do are going to church, the movies, and Disneyland.
