Our Staff

Julie Mann

This is Julie's first year as director. Her son was in our preschool program for three years. During that time, she was able to see the loving and caring environment that Joyful Noise Christian Preschool is all about. When Miss Pat retired, Julie was happy to jump into a positive program that taught preschoolers about God's love. She enjoys interacting with parents so they can have the same positive experience that she had. Julie also serves as a teacher's aide for Miss Sharon three days a week.

Sharon Funk

Sharon has been working with our preschool since 2015. She previously worked in the Carlisle Area School District with special needs children for over ten years. Her passion is educating young children while bringing enthusiasm and creativity to the classroom. Miss Sharon thinks of each student and their individual needs constantly so they can thrive at their own pace.

Laurie Ward
Teacher's Aide 

Laurie's relationship with Joyful Noise also started when her daughter was a student here for two years. Laurie uses her great mom skills to help Miss Sharon keep the classroom moving smoothly two days per week. She enjoys working on creative projects with the students and working behind the scenes to keep things organized and running well. When she is not in the classroom she enjoys spending time with her husband and three children.
