Jen Boog, Director
I was the lead preschool teacher at Abiding Savior from 2014 – 2019 and I loved every minute of it – great families, great children and a great community! However, an opening to teach preschool opened up at the school that my two daughters were attending and I felt as if I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to be in the same school and same school district as they were in. However, I felt something pulling me back to Abiding Savior Preschool and became the director during the 2021-2022 school year.
I have been married for 17 years to my husband Marcus. Our family consists of our two daughters and our dog named Baxter who we adore. I love spending time with my family in my free time. However, with two teenage daughters in the house our free time is limited; they are both extremely involved in sports. We are busy most weekends watching them play softball, volleyball or basketball depending on what time of the year it is.

I grew up on a farm near Ludington, Michigan. I studied nursing at Wayne State and when I got married I moved to Minnesota. I worked as a nanny for 4 years and had my own daycare for almost 10 years. I worked as a preschool teacher at Christ Lutheran Early Learning Center for 19 years. I have been married to my husband, Eric, for 39 years and have two grown children.
