MEET OUR PRESCHOOL LEAD TEACHERS

Callie Januszewski
Preschool 3 Co-Lead Teacher

My name is Callie Januszewski and I am one of the preschool 3 teachers here at Cultivate Mankato. I originally grew up in Brooklyn Park, MN, but came to Mankato for college. I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Spanish. During college, I met my husband and we bought a house together in Mankato. We have a five year old son. During my free time, I enjoy working out, traveling with my family, swimming, arts and crafts, and watching movies. I love spending time with my family too. Im very easy going, patient, kind, and love being with children. Growing up, I always knew I had a passion for teaching young children. I love watching them learn, grow, and be the best that they can be. I can't wait to be your son/daughter's teacher here at Cultivate Mankato.

Britt Cline
Preschool 2 Co-Lead Teacher

My name is Britt Cline and I am the lead teacher in Preschool 2. I was raised across the river in North Mankato and am glad to be working with a company who values the community within the company: all of us, as well as the community without: greater Mankato. I love living here and raising my family (husband and daughter born in 2017) here. My educational background is in communication sciences and disorders, philosophy, and psychology. My vocational background is as a special education paraeducator with Mankato Area Public Schools preschool. Kids are my favorite people to be around, and I am looking forward to helping them grow and learn. Thank you for that privilege!
