  • Beth Widgren

    Preschool Teacher

    I headed off to college with the goal of becoming a pediatric dental hygienist. That first year, biology and chemistry classes filled my schedule, but the “extra” class in education was a life-changer. As I did the required in-the-classroom observations, I realized I wanted to teach children much more than I wanted to take care of their teeth. As a result, I have spent more than half my life teaching preschool and kindergarten in both public and private schools. During that time, my philosophy of what children need to learn has evolved, and I believe that Eagle Creek offers me the best opportunity to deliver what I know is right. One of my goals is to meet each child’s individual needs. Since joining Eagle Creek in 2007, I have been able to accomplish that by teaching children in very small groups, working closely with parents and using hands-on experiences. I have several teaching degrees and attended literally hundreds of seminars, but I really learn how to teach by being in the classroom with the children.


  • ​Erika Barnowsky

    Preschool Teacher

    In 2008, while living in Boston, I found my calling when I was offered a position in a preschool classroom, and I have been teaching three to five-year-old children ever since. In 2010, my husband and I moved back home to Michigan to be near family. Since then, I have taught at Premier Academy and Oakland Christian School, and now I am happy to be at Eagle Creek. One of the great things about preschool is the adventure. I love watching the children discover new words, figure out how math works, and try new science experiments. Developing relationships with families is also important to me. I believe that teaching a young child is a team effort, and I am eager to join you in that.


  • Linda Vecore

    Preschool Teacher

    I became interested in becoming a teacher when my 3rd-grade teacher took a special interest in me. When she later became my 6th-grade teacher, I knew I wanted to be like her. I continue to keep in contact with her today. After graduating from Oakland University, I raised my two children, volunteered at their school and taught religious education at our church. After that, for ten years, I worked at Romeo Montessori and then Premier Academy, and I continued my education at the Michigan Montessori Teacher Education Center. Since coming to Eagle Creek Academy in 2013, I have worked hard to create an inviting environment that encourages my students to explore new materials and have concrete experiences. My goal is to meet each child’s interests and needs at his developmental level and guide him individually.


  • Jenn Devine

    Preschool Teacher

    I have been working with children as a preschool teacher, a Kindergarten teacher, a special education teacher, and a mentor for at-risk students since 1997. I am certified to teach K-12, and I have a special endorsement for teaching children who have learning disabilities. My favorite group is three-year-old children because they make me smile, keep me guessing, and learn so much so quickly. As a teacher, I enjoy creating challenging learning opportunities in the classroom, in daily life, and in the natural world. I enjoy guiding the children in fostering a safe, caring and tolerant classroom; learning about feelings and needs; and practicing academic concepts such as reading, math, science and language. When I am not teaching, I can be found somewhere in nature with my husband and three daughters who are in middle school and high school. I love to camp, hike and practice mindfulness, and I take a yoga class on occasion.


  • Stephanie Pinson

    Kindergarten Teacher

    When I was a child, I would rush home from school and play teacher. In college, I tried to go the business route, but I loathed sitting at a desk and looking at a computer screen all day. Changing my major to education was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I earned my BA in Education and went on to get my MA in Early Childhood from Oakland University. For many years, I taught at Walton Charter Academy and Alpine Academy, and I ran a summer camp in Rochester. I have been at Eagle Creek since 2005, teaching Kindergarten and fourth grade. I love coming to work every day and watching my students grow and learn. My favorite part is comparing their work from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.


  • Crissa King

    First Grade Teacher

    I am thrilled to be a first-grade teacher! I enjoy this age of excitement and wonder, and I especially love watching children take huge steps in their academic, social and emotional growth. My goals as a teacher are to meet each child at his own unique level and provide a nurturing environment where all can thrive. With over a decade of elementary teaching, spanning Kindergarten through 6th grade, I am happy to be doing the thing I love.


  • Nicole Minton

    First Grade Teacher

    Before coming to Eagle Creek, I was an Academic Specialist, working with small groups of students, finding new ways to present material to be sure that each of them was able to progress. I have also worked in a clinic with students who are on the autistic spectrum. That was very rewarding because I was able to help them find ways to communicate and grow. After more than ten years of working with children, I am happy to be at Eagle Creek where I can build a classroom and a community. I can’t wait to get to know you and your children!


  • Cathie Passon

    Second Grade Teacher

    When I was in the fourth grade at St. Anne’s, I decided that I was going to be a teacher. My teacher was a true inspiration because she made learning meaningful and enjoyable at the same time. Over the years, I have taught second, fourth and fifth grades and special education. One highlight was implementing the new elementary science curriculum at Akiva Day School. Another was starting at Eagle Creek in 2011. My goal is to encourage students to take responsibility for their learning and develop pride in their work. Every year, I get excited about working with new students and their families.


  • Julie Rorai

    Third Grade

    When I think about the educators who influenced me, they all have one thing in common – they cared about me as a person. Because of the meaningful experiences with my teachers, I decided I wanted to impact the lives of children, too. Although I have been teaching since 2004, I still pursue advanced training, especially in how to teach reading and writing. I believe it is important to encourage children to be accountable for their learning, and I love using cooperative learning strategies that truly engage them.


  • Kimberly Kasal

    Fourth & Fifth Grade Teacher

    I fondly remember my middle school social studies classes because of the meaningful hands-on lessons. From those positive experiences, I was inspired to pursue a career in teaching. As an enthusiastic and student-focused professional, I am committed to ensuring that every child’s learning styles and abilities are addressed and celebrated. I am a strong advocate of intrinsic motivation and encourage my students to take ownership of their learning and challenge themselves. My professional interests focus on Quantum Teaching, balanced literacy, and project-based learning. Throughout my career, I have taught continuing education courses for teachers through Valparaiso University, provided intensive tutoring, and facilitated academic and team-building summer camps for children.


  • Nate Pietrzak

    Fourth & Fifth Grade Teacher

    Most all of my memories from my school years are positive, even the moments that were hard. (I view them today as turning points.) Because of this, I wanted to make a similar impact on the lives of our youth. I chose the natural thing: education. I am passionate about maximizing potential and seeing the best in every learner, every day. Most importantly, I love to have fun! I believe students see the world best through strong literacy skills, and I back up that approach. I own several thousand children's books, and I am always reading something myself. Whether it is keeping up on professional skills, or a summer novel, I always have my nose in a book. I have taught fifth grade, taught reading skills to at-risk students, coached girls’ basketball, coached the Battle of the Books, coached STRIDE (a mentoring program), and written and directed school plays at Detroit Leadership Academy, St. Genevieve Catholic School, Dr. Charles Drew Academy and Highland Park Renaissance Academy. I am grateful to serve the students, parents, staff and community here at Eagle Creek and I am eager to meet you, too.


  • Cateena Cleveland

    Middle School Science Teacher

    I graduated with my Master degree in Education from Wayne State University. Then, I went on to Grand Valley State University and completed my School Administrator Certification with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction. I began my teaching career at my church as a Sunday school teacher, and eventually I became the director of the children’s church and all youth activities. I began teaching middle school science in 1996 and later taught science at the high school level. In 2008, I became the chairperson of the science department where I learned a variety of skills to help teachers with curriculum, lesson planning, and classroom management. I have also been a dean of students, an instructional specialist and an assessment coordinator. I truly enjoy working with children. I believe they learn by being active participants in experiences that directly tie into the learning target. I look forward to working with you and your children this year.


  • Meagan Zayti

    Second Grade, Middle School Language Arts & Middle School Social Studies Teacher

    My goal is to help children achieve academic excellence. I do this by using effective materials and lessons and having high expectations for my students. It is important that the children find their own joy in the pursuit of skills and knowledge, and that this joy follows them through the years. I have taught first through eighth grades for seven years, and I have enjoyed every minute it. I am also a saxophone player and enjoy using music in the classroom.


  • Shelly Karl

    Middle School Math Teacher

    My primary goal is to establish a classroom environment that encourages each student’s individual growth both academically and personally. I am focused on getting to know my students while motivating them to develop the skills and knowledge to advance. During my long career, I have held positions as the middle school Math Department Chair and district Math Committee Member. I also hold a MA in Guidance and Counseling and worked as a high school counselor for over 10 years. I have been delighted by Eagle Creek’s close-knit community and have enjoyed being a part of it.


  • Amie Gamache

    STEM Teacher

    By the time I was in eighth grade and given the chance to help with the little kids in the tiny private school I attended, I knew that teaching was the profession for me. All through high school and college, I taught Parks and Rec preschool classes and summer camps. After graduating from Michigan State, my first teaching experience was in that very same tiny private school, followed by nine years of teaching elementary school in the Flint Public Schools. Along the way, I also led my school’s technology team and worked as a trainer for the Genesee Intermediate School District, showing teachers throughout the county how to integrate technology into their classrooms. When Eagle Creek was still on the drawing board, I joined the Alpine Academy staff as the Kindergarten teacher and completed my Master degree in Early Childhood at Oakland University. Since joining Eagle Creek when it opened, I have taught preschool, Kindergarten, first grade and technology. My oldest daughter recently graduated from Eagle Creek and headed to high school, and I am delighted that she has the confidence and preparation to balance her challenging academic classes along with her sports and clubs. I also two younger daughters still at Eagle Creek. My passion is to teach children a firm grasp of language and all it can do for them. I want my students to have the tools to gather information and share it with others. I enjoy being a part of that excitement.


  • Señora Natalia Murasky

    Spanish Teacher

    Prior to joining the Eagle Creek faculty in 2012, I volunteered at local schools as well as the Detroit Zoo. I found it enjoyable to work with children one-on-one and in small groups, so I returned to Oakland University to get an MA in Teaching. In my Spanish classroom, I create a safe environment where students are motivated to participate even when they are not sure if they are correct. My goal is to make learning Spanish fun and hands-on, so I use a lot of games and physical activities. Another goal is to take my students beyond an appreciation for foreign languages and help them actually understand and speak the language. I am a native Spanish-speaker, having been born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am always excited to see both familiar and new faces at Eagle Creek, and I look forward to speaking Spanish with you!


  • Señora Susana Cerneka

    Spanish Teacher

    I knew I was going to be a teacher when I was 6 years old. This was because my mother and grandmother were both teachers, and I wanted to follow their footsteps. I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, which is where I obtained my degrees and taught for many years. In 1989, I moved to Michigan and have worked as a teacher ever since because teaching is my passion. In 2006, I started at Eagle Creek. I can't believe how time flies – now I have five grandchildren! My energy for teaching has never changed. Teaching is a new start every day. I always do my best, and I am lucky that I get to go home with a feeling of accomplishment every day.


  • Lisa Merriman

    Art Teacher

    After starting a family, I felt a strong pull to give up being an illustrator (a career I had loved for many years) and become an art teacher, and a new chapter in my life began. Sharing the joy of creating art with students is a natural fit for me, and I have been having a great time! My teaching approach includes demonstration and guiding students to create on their own. I like to maintain a positive, encouraging environment for students to use their imagination, take risks and explore. There are no mistakes in art! I remind students that what is most important is to try their best, work hard and enjoy the experience. Before joining Eagle Creek, I taught at Utica Community Schools and facilitated numerous student art shows. At home, I love creating art, cooking, and spending time with my husband and two adorable girls.


  • Caroline Lewicky

    French Teacher

    My career in education began almost twenty years ago in Istanbul, Turkey. After a short but successful career in advertising, I became passionate about education and joined a private international school where I taught French, Technology and various grade levels. I am interested in inquiry-based learning and believe that it is important to build strong relationships with students in order to support them in their journey to becoming knowledgeable and caring individuals. I am originally from Belgium, and I speak French, Turkish and English fluently. I have lived in many different countries and was pleased to move to Michigan not long ago with my husband and teenage daughter. This is now home and I am delighted to be part of the distinctive learning community at Eagle Creek.


  • Mary Walters

    Music Teacher

    I started working with children and music as a camp counselor when I was in college, and I have enjoyed it ever since. My goals as a music teacher are to encourage children to find joy in creating their own sound and to develop a life-long appreciation of music. I have taught elementary music for many years, most recently in Ferndale and Huron Valley. I have also been teaching private violin lessons for a long time. I have also worked in orchestras, churches and youth theater. Lately, I have been participating in local choir and hand bell groups. I also love watching my two daughters march in the Michigan Marching Band. Go Blue


  • Kaitlin Manoogian

    Gym Teacher

    Becoming a teacher has been my dream since third grade. My dream came true when I received my teaching degree in Health and Physical Education from Central Michigan University. I love to teach the true meaning of lifelong fitness and have fun with my students. I am also a cheer coach at Eisenhower High School. In my spare time, I enjoy being outside, playing with my dogs and cooking in the kitchen.


  • Janet Ferrett

    Preschool Assistant and After-School Supervisor

    For 26 years, I taught Kindergarten through 6th grade for the Imlay City School District. I have enjoyed working at Eagle Creek in several positions, from middle school teacher to preschool teacher to private tutor. I especially enjoy working with particular students one-one-one as they grasp new concepts and strive for excellence. I have also liked working in small groups with the children who are learning English as their second language. Although I already have a few degrees and certificates, my love for learning new things is always prompting me to take further courses. My hobbies include traveling, skiing, walking, biking, boating, reading, gardening, concerts and watching college football.


  • Cathy Hammond


    I have been teaching since I was six years old when I sat in the back seat on the way up north and drilled my little sister with spelling words. When I was an undergrad at Northwestern University in Chicago, I taught GED classes. Later, when I was a graduate student at Wayne State, I taught computer classes. Eventually, I found my way to the public schools in Bloomfield Hills and Rochester, where I taught French, English, and English as a Second Language. In 1995, I founded Alpine Academy, a preschool in Oakland Township. In 2005, I founded Eagle Creek. I have loved every minute since the beginning. I believe teaching and learning are the most important jobs in the world.


  • Christine Kulp

    Assistant Principal

    I graduated with my elementary teaching degree in New Hampshire. After moving to Michigan, I worked as the director of a child care center for four years and a substitute teacher for Romeo and Lapeer schools while raising my son and daughter. When I returned to work full-time, I taught K to 8 in a variety of public and private schools for sixteen years before being promoted to principal at Brookfield Academy in Troy. I then added the extra responsibility of Curriculum Director for all five Brookfield schools and later became the Regional Manager which was more on the business side. I joined Eagle Creek Academy as the Director of Student Services in 2011 and was promoted to Assistant Principal in 2012. I am thrilled to be back to my passion: supporting teachers, families and students in a school with a strong mission and a 21st century curriculum.

  • Julia Casadei

    School Secretary

    I have been in management for twenty years. One highlight was when I worked at Oakland Hills Country Club and prepared for the 2004 Ryder Cup. It was an exciting event that went well, except that the USA loss handedly to the Europeans. In 2010, I helped open Tre Monte Ristorante in Troy, working on menu selection, computer systems and hiring staff. I was really excited when we won Hour Detroit Magazine’s restaurant of the year in 2012. I have also held positions from catering to general manager in various hotels. I have always lived and worked in this area, growing up in Birmingham and now living in Oakland Township. My husband is Enzo and we have a son named Jeffrey. We also have two dogs named George and Ralph. My favorite hobbies include skiing, sailing and hiking. In 2014, I hiked over 40 miles of the Appalachian Trail. I am looking forward to meeting you!

After a few years, I moved back to Michigan to be closer to my family and happened to meet the love of my life, Scott, whom I married two years ago at our favorite location up north. Recently, I have been focusing on accounting and business management. I truly believe that when you continue to learn and push yourself, endless opportunities will present themselves.
