We welcome our new Preschool Director

Hello! My name is Bessie Geilenfeldt (Guy-len-felt) and I am the Preschool’s new Director. I am very excited to come onboard with Santa Sophia Academy and Parish.

A quick note about me: I have three children, ages 23, 15, 13. I have been married for 17 years to the love of my life and he is a firefighter. I love working with children. I love to see them grow spiritually and academically.

I was a Lead Preschool Teacher for 6 years at a preschool in El Cajon, and God has blessed me with this new opportunity as a Director. My husband and I converted to the Catholic Faith in 2016 from the Protestant faith of 15 years. God is amazing!

I look forward to meeting you, so please stop by the office and say hello when you get the opportunity. I appreciate your prayers and grace as I transition into this new position.

Blessings, Bessie Geilenfeldt (aka Mrs. G)
