Andrea Kapicka-Keeton
Andrea (Kapicka)-Keeton was born and raised in Caldwell where she and her husband, Michael, are raising the last two of their five children. As a youth, she graduated from Vallivue High School before attending Cosumnes River Community College and Liberty University. Over the course of the last 24 years, she has been a SAHM and has balanced her life with the various activities of her four sons (23, 22, 19, 15) and her 8 year old daughter. All five children attended Grace for preschool and have very fond memories of those years. Andrea has loved every minute at home, and she is looking forward to the next chapter in being a part of the Grace Lutheran Preschool family as a teacher for the three year old’s. She most looks forward to the time she will spend filling the cups, and having her cup filled in return with the little people in her class, sharing the love of Jesus partnered with a love for learning.
