Hello - My name is Alicia Rodick and I am very excited to be back on the Abounding Love Preschool team again this year! Last year was wonderful! I enjoyed getting to know so many new students and families. I’m excited to see many of last year’s preschoolers in Pre-K this year!

My husband Matt & I have three wonderful children. Madison - 20 loves reading, fashion, art, and running track. She is a great helper around the house and is an excellent example for her younger siblings. Alec - 13 enjoys playing just about every sport - especially football, and is an avid reader. Anna - 4 makes us all laugh everyday and is such a joy in our lives and keeps us all on our toes!

I grew up out in the country between two very small towns - California and Jamestown, MO. I was very fortunate to have a loving, Godly family that attended church and Sunday school every week. We were always involved in our church, as well as youth activities growing up. I attribute my strong faith in Christ to my family at home, as well as my church family always pointing me in the right direction. I attended the University of Missouri as well as Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville, graduating from SIUE in 2002 with my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and a minor in psychology. I am also endorsed to teach Early Childhood Education. I have been teaching for 11 years, ages pre-k through first grade.

I have been married to my husband Matt for over 19 years. We have experienced a lot on our adventure together - we have lived in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska and most recently Tennessee with his company before moving back home to Missouri. We are very thankful and excited to be back home in Missouri for the past three years and closer to our families. I look forward to meeting all of my future students and their families. I truly believe that you are your child’s first and best teacher and I am so happy to be a part of their journey spiritually as well as academically along with you.
