Elizabeth Firebaugh Brunk

Older 2's, 3's and Enrichment Classes


Mrs. Brunk holds a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from University of Central Florida.  Her son attended Heritage Learning Center as a four year old with our very own Mrs. Hogan.  Finding the school an absolutely wonderful place, she decided to apply in the fall of 1999 and has been teaching Two and Three-year-old classes here ever since.  Outside of Heritage, Mrs. Brunk enjoys gardening, cooking (especially on the grill), and most of all, spending quality time with her friends and family.  She is married to Mr. Randy Brunk; together they are the proud parents of two daughters and one son, who will be attending college this fall.

Kathy Hogan

4's Classes


I'm Kathy Hogan and I have been a teacher at Heritage Learning Center since 1993.  The years have just flown by.  I guess that adage about time flies when you're having fun is true!  I have always enjoyed working with young children.  I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a major in Early Childhood Education.  I grew up in Connecticut but moved to Maryland in 1989.  I have a wonderful husband and four grown children (3 boys and 1 girl).  Heritage Learning Center has become a second family to me.


Joelle Roloff

3's Classes

Joelle has been working with children for 30 years in April of 2017.  She has taught a wide-variety of ages to include pre-school through grade eight.  Joelle's degrees are in education, both at the early-childhood and elementary levels.  Joelle's philosophy is that children area gift from God and childhood is a most precious time.  It is at the pre-school level that the foundation for all learning takes place.  Joelle is both honored and blessed to be working with the youngest of learners at Heritage Learning Center.  Heritage is a beautiful place to learn.

Lynn Schasiepen

2's Classes

A native of Connecticut, Lynn graduated from Trinity College in Washington, D.C.  She loves teaching and especially loves being with the 2 year old class.  Years of teaching adults wasn't nearly as fun!  Lynn and her husband, Craig, have two boys.  When Lynn isn't in the classroom you can generally find her enjoying the outdoors.  Activities like skiing, ice hockey, camping and swimming keep Lynn and her family very busy!
