It has been said that teachers are born; for Angela Vossenkuhl this statement rings true.  At the age of three she could be found lining up dolls in the house to play “school”.  Working towards her Bachelor’s degree at Concordia University in Portland, Oregon she considered other career options, but ultimately fell into what she loved; early childhood education.

Immediately following graduation, Angela began her teaching career in the Lake Oswego School District in a second/third grade blended classroom.  Later, after moving north to Ridgefield, WA she taught pre-kindergarten, worked as a substitute educator, and attained her next major career goal; she completed her Masters of Education with a reading endorsement at Concordia University.  These experiences provided her the opportunity to mentor students and parents while continuing to expand her knowledge of best practices in education.  Most recently Angela served as the Assistant Director and Advisor of Undergraduate Studies for the College of Education at Concordia University, Portland.

On a personal note, Angela has been happily married for 16 years and is blessed with three active children.  Angela is a supporter of the Northwest Down Syndrome Association and Bike First! A clinic that teaches children with disabilities the skills needed to ride a traditional bicycle.
