Preschool Teachers

Carol Alexander

Mrs. Carol Alexander

Mrs. Carol Alexander has been teaching Preschool with the Toledo Catholic Diocese since August of 1998. The last 16 years have been at St. Pius. I started this program in 1998 at St. Agnes School in Toledo, Ohio, and brought it to St. Pius in 2006. “I went into Early Childhood Education because I love working with children, especially young children. I want to make a difference in my students lives and give them a solid educational foundation”.

I grew up in Toledo Ohio and attended Blessed Sacrament grade school and Central Catholic High School and went on to college to study Early Childhood Education. My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 33 years and we have two sons, Corey, and Kevin. My son Kevin married his wife Bailee in 2018, so I now have a wonderful daughter as well through marriage. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family and friends and grand puppies, read, walk, and vacation near any warm beach. I feel blessed to have a job that I love going to every day!

Mrs. Kelly Lajiness has been with the Preschool program as an assistant since 2012. She recently obtained her teaching license and will be co-teaching with me.

I am so excited to have Kelly as a co-teacher. She is a very caring, creative, and wonderful person.

Kelly has been a parishioner at St. Pius for many years and she has two children that attended St. Pius X School, Alexa, and Cooper.
