Dawn Rieckmann

Owner & Teacher

“I have always had a passion for teaching young children. In 2014, I joined the Alphabet Express 4K Program team. In 2015, I became the proud owner of the Alphabet Express and have loved every minute of my new adventure. As a mother of two beautiful daughters, I realize how important the early growing years are. I wanted to make the Alphabet Express a loving and supportive school for children to grow, learn and play in a nurturing environment. I found a co-teacher, Leah Fisher, who loves and enjoys working with young children as much as I do.”


“I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Beloit College and my Early Childhood Degree from Viterbo University. I'm a certified teacher for birth through sixth grade. I have taught 4K for the past eight years and I was a third grade teacher for five years - with many other teaching experiences over the past 18 years. We are truly blessed to work with wonderful families in the Portage community. Thank you for sharing your children with us!”

Leah Fisher

4K Teacher

“I am so glad my path has led me to where I am today. Teaching at the Alphabet Express 4K Program is a true joy and blessing as I am working towards my Early Childhood Certification. I live in Wyocena, WI with my husband, two girls, two dogs, and one cat. I went to college in Fargo, ND and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. I really enjoyed working with animals and it has taught me how dynamic a work environment can be which relates to working with four and five year olds as well. I am blessed to be able to teach at Alphabet Express and look forward to more adventures in teaching and getting to know more children and their families in the future.”
