Meet the Teachers
Terrific Two's Program
Mrs. Carolyn Sweeton
Hello! I have the joy of teaching the Terrific Two’s class! I graduated from Monmouth College with a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education and history. In my teaching career, I have worked with children in preschools, day care centers, and public and private schools. Most recently I have been working with preschool children at a summer camp.
In 2006, I moved from a small beach town in NJ to Exeter, with my husband, George and our twin sons, Sam and Jon. Since moving here we adopted our daughter, Kayla. My sons graduated high school in 2020, and my daughter is in high school. I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy taking walks, reading, and going to the beach. I am excited to be partnering with you and your child as they have fun learning and growing this year!

I am looking forward to joining the three-year-old classroom this year as an assistant teacher. I am a graduate of Northwestern Lehigh High School and Southern New Hampshire University. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Eastern University.
Pre-Kindergarten Two and Three Day Program
Mrs. Roberta Wagner
I have been teaching at Schwarzwald UCC Preschool since the Fall of 2006. I have worked with preschool-age children for over twenty years. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education from West Chester University. My experience with preschool-age children began when I developed a Preschool through Grade 3 children's choir program. I was a church choir director for 13 years and gave music instruction to choir members ranging in age from two to adults in retirement. I became interested in teaching preschool when my own daughter attended Schwarzwald UCC Preschool. I was very impressed with the Preschool program and the quality of the teachers hired by the Board. When a position became available, I was very pleased to be offered the position. Music will always be a vital part of my life, but teaching preschool has become my new passion. In my spare time I enjoy scrap booking and reading.

Lunch Bunch Program
Mrs. Kim Schafer
Hello! My name is Kim Schafer and this is my second year working at Schwarzwald UCC Preschool as the Lunch Bunch teacher. I am a graduate of Muhlenberg High School and Arcadia University. After several years using my chemistry degree working in laboratories, I became a stay at home mom to my daughter, Kayla, and my son, Owen. Once they were both attending elementary school, I started volunteering so much that their principal suggested I get a job there! I worked as a substitute instructional aide at Owatin Creek for the past 5 years. I live here in Exeter, with my husband, Michael, our children, and our two rescue dogs, Loki and Rocket. I enjoy walking the dogs, spending time outdoors, reading, spending time with my family, and vacationing at the Jersey Shore. Attending all my kids’ sporting events keeps me busy as well. I look forward to being a part of your children’s preschool experience and part of the Schwarzwald UCC Preschool family!
Mrs. Lynne Cuesta
Hello! I am excited for another year as Director at Schwarzwald UCC Preschool, working with an amazing teaching team! I grew up in Exeter and am a Schwarzwald UCC preschool graduate myself. I have my Associates Degree from Penn State Schuylkill and many years experience working with children. I was an active member on the preschool board and parents on board for a few years before my director role.
My husband, Rene and I have 3 children- Oliviana going to 3rd grade and Adrian going to 1st grade at Owatin Creek Elem. (both Schwarzwald graduates) and Emilia is attending the 3s class at Schwarzwald this fall!
I enjoy swimming, baking, going on vacations and spending time with my family and friends! I also volunteer for Owatin Creek APT and stay pretty busy throughout the year with my kids sports and activities.
My goal is to provide a happy and safe place for your child, and for them to love to come to school everyday! We strive to give your children an exceptional early learning experience and prepare them for their academic road ahead!
I am looking forward to having a fun year, and watching your children grow socially and academically!
