Toddlers (Room 11)

Andrea Sorensen

This is my 8th year at Assumption and I’m excited to be co-lead teaching in the toddler room with Ms. Audrey. I’ve enjoyed working with the little ones and look forward to what this year brings. This past spring, my husband Craig and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. We have three children, Vincenzio, Haley and Ava. As a family, we enjoy camping, bike riding, swimming and bowling.

Audrey D’Angelo

This is my 2nd year at Assumption as a lead caregiver. I received my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education and currently I attend Rochester College to pursue a B.A. In past years, I was a nanny for many families, while completing my clinical hours at Assumption. I’m delighted to be part of the team and to support the wonderful children here.

Claudia Kiriazis

This is my first year at Assumption.  I love working with the children and seeing all their happy faces. My first 10 years of experience working with toddlers and preschoolers was working with my mother who own and operated two Gymboree learning programs in the area.  Since 2005, I have worked as an assistant teacher at 2 child care centers in the Royal Oak area.  I am looking forward to spending many years at Assumption.  I enjoy watching movies, doing puzzles, spending time with my family/friends and babysitting.


Emily Athey

I am a student at Wayne State pursing a degree in Elementary Education.  This is my first year at Assumption and it is such a joy! I love coming to work everyday and watching the toddlers learn and grow.  When I’m not at work, I might be face painting, traveling or just spending time with my family.  I look forward to a great year getting to know your little ones as their personalities blossom.

Keri Charetien

This my first year at Assumption Pre-School and Toddler Center.  I am an assistant teacher to Ms. Audrey and Ms. Andrea in room 11. My husband Mike and I have been married for almost 25 years.  We have four beautiful daughters; Lindsey, Lauren, Hannah and Hailey.  We also have a 15 month old grandson named Michael and a granddaughter on the way.  As a family we enjoy soccer, boating, traveling and camping.  I am very excited to come to school and be with all these beautiful rays of sunshine everyday. It has been such a great experience to be apart of you children’s developments.

Kathy Michaux

This is my first year at Assumption.  I ran my own at-home day care for 8 years and after taking some time to pursue  other dreams, it is great to be back working with children and watching them grow.  I have two daughters, Becca and Jenna that make me a very proud mother.  They both attended the preschool program here at Assumption so it is nice to be a part of this school again.  In my free time, I enjoy bike riding, walking my two dogs, watching movies, going out with friends and spending time with my daughters.
