Lori Casella

Owner, Director of Education


I am thrilled that this is my first year as Director of Education at Precious Angels Preschool! While obtaining my Bachelor's Degree from Georgian Court University, I worked at a daycare, which I later managed. Prior to managing the daycare, I taught preschool and Kindergarten at a private school. I have a 10 year old son who I am happy to say previously attended Precious Angels. Being a new mother, I wanted to find a loving and caring environment for my child and this was it. Precious Angels was a wonderful first school experience for my son. This past May, I got married and my husband and I love to travel. When we aren't traveling, you can find me in the kitchen baking up some goodies. 


Michelle Caminiti

Owner, Director of Operations


I am excited to say that this is my first year as Director of Operations at Precious Angels PreschooI! I received my Bachelors Degree in Business Management from Stockton University. Currently I live in Freehold but I am originally from Howell. I love seeing all the familiar faces I grew up with now sending their children to our school. It has always been my dream to own a preschool and now I am fortunate to say that my dreams have come true. For as long as I can remember, I have been working with children. I have cared for and taught children of all ages, from infants to grade school. And to top it all off, I am in business with my best friend of over 25 years! Lori and I are blessed to have a wonderful friendship and share this new and exciting journey together.

Ms. Kathryn

Pre-K Teacher


I have been working here at Precious Angels since the school opened in 1997. I am married and have three wonderful daughters, all grown up. I saw them all through college and graduate school, so I know how important education is in todays world. When I'm not at work, you can find me walking the reservoir during the fall and relaxing at the beaches in the summer. Teaching Pre-K is an important task that I take very seriously. I love getting the children ready for Kindergarten and in our classroom, your child will have every opportunity to become Kindergarten ready! I have taught every age level here at Precious Angels and am familiar with all the milestones that come along with every age. My motto has always been "childhood is a journey, not a race". Let me be a part of your child's journey!


Ms. Barbara

Pre-K Aide


This will be my third year as a Pre-K aide. I am looking forward to an exciting year meeting new parents and students, as well as returning ones. This has been a very rewarding career change for me. In my time away from Precious Angels, I work as a banquest manager. I am married for 38 years and have a son. My favorite hobby is to keep up with everything Disney! Of course, my favorite vacation spot is Disney World. 


Ms. Sharon

Pre-School Teacher


I have been at Precious Angels since the school opened in 1997. I am married with three children and have one beautiful granddaughter. I have been teaching the three year olds for over 16 years now and love it. I love that they still need hugs and cuddling but also take my job very seriously in preparing them for Pre-K next year. I enjoy reading, crocheting and relaxing on the beach listening to the waves. I have a CCP Certification, Group Teacher Certification and attend various workshops over the year, furthering myself to learn new ways to teach the children while having fun!



Ms. Maribel

Pre-School Aide


I have been working at Precious Angels for 14 years now and have loved every moment of it. I am married and my husband and I have raised 3 beautiful girls together. During my free time, you can find me planting flowers in my garden, walking the reservoir or relaxing on the couch with my dog and a sudoku puzzle. Every year, I look forward to doing the best I can to give the children an amazing and memorable experience.  

Ms. Kim

Toddler Teacher


I am proud to say that this is my third year working at Precious Angels. I have worked with Ms Sue in both the Toddler and Pre-School classrooms and love it. I am a proud mother of three wonderful children and recently just became a grandma! I am extremely family orientated and love spending time reading to my granddaughter or snuggling up to a good book at the end of the day. I feel that working with children is extremely rewarding. Seeing a child grow and develop is what working at Precious Angels is all about!

Ms. Colleen

Aftercare Teacher


Precious Angels has been a fulfiling experience for me for the past 16 years! I met and cared for many children throughout the years and have enjoyed each and every one of them. I started out as a three year old teacher and have now moved on to teach the aftercare children. It is a pleasure to watch the children grow from year to year. Looking forward to another wonderful year ahead!

Ms. Mandy
