My husband, Bryan, works in the Oil and Gas Industry. Bryan and I have been happily married for 28yrs. We have owned multiple businesses including mass excavation companies, feed store and a western store. We love exploring the great outdoors. We enjoy camping, white water rafting, mountain biking, paddle boarding, skiing, horse back riding and of course attending sporting events. </p><p>I am a proud mama of three beautiful adult children. Logan is 25 years old and has Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Epilepsy and many other medical diagnosis's. I can tell you, that has never slowed him down. He's a very active young man, just like the rest of our family. Baylee is our middle child and she is 22 years old. She is in the Speech and Language Pathology program at Texas Tech Health Science School. Rylee-Rae is our youngest, she is 21 years old. She is in the Nursing program at Texas Tech Health Science School. Both girls played multiple sports all through school and competed in rodeos. </p><p>I received my Bachelor Degree in Child Psychology and Criminology. I really enjoyed working with at risk youth in many different formats. After our son was born, I went back to Graduate school and received my Masters in Special Education-Early Intervention. I have worked in the classrooms with the little ones, there is nothing more rewarding. I have also put on workshops and trainings for professionals and parents on behavior issues, parent teacher collaboration, specific disabilities, including learning disabilities. </p><p>I am a true believer in nurturing children's social and emotional development through age appropriate play, mixed in with their academics. I am so blessed to spend my days with your children and seeing the world through their eyes. I love how everything is so new and exciting to them. It is truly a gift to watch them as they are introduced to new concepts and ideas through their play and watch the "light bulb" moments happen. I look forward to getting to know each and every family.</p>FalseTrueTami Leonard , Director

I attended Waters Elementary before moving up to Evans Middle School and finally graduating as a Monterey Plainsmen in May of 2012. After graduation I moved to Austin TX to attend St. Edwards University. While attending St. Ed’s I was a part-time nanny before being introduced to my first early childcare center.</p><p>After graduating in 2016 I knew working with children was something I wanted to pursue. I was hired as an early preschool teacher for a new Primrose School opening in Dripping Springs TX. This is where I spent my next two years. My time there as Early Preschool and Preschool Pathways teacher showed me the impact a teacher can have on the lives of their students.</p><p>Looking to further my career, I eventually took a position in management at another school located in Lakeway TX. The skills and perspective that I gained there have taught me important lessons about being a member of the administration team.</p><p>I am so excited to return to Lubbock and be near family and friends! I hope to help make Primrose a positive, comforting and active learning environment for both students and staff.</p><p>I can’t wait to meet you!</p>FalseTrueMorghan Bills , Education Coach

I also taught Kindergarten in public school for several years.After moving to Lubbock I continued to work part time as a tutor for a public school in town. I left education almost six years ago and thought I was ready for a different career path. I sampled a few different things, but something kept tugging at my heart and I would realize from time to time, I miss the children and I miss teaching!After becoming a mom in 2016, I quickly realized the HUGE need for quality childcare in Lubbock, Texas.There was nothing in town quite like a Primrose School.I woke in the middle of the night with the sudden urge that Lubbock NEEDS a Primrose School.When it comes to early childhood education my standards have always been high.Therefore, Primrose has always stood out to me, and over all the years of teaching I continued to carry on some of those core foundations I learned during my time at Primrose School.At Primrose School of Lubbock South, we will use an exclusive Balanced Learning™ approach to forge a path to a brighter future and a lifelong love of learning for all children. Children will also learn the foundational skills to develop Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®.</p><p><a name="_Hlk45615077">Who children become is as important as what they know is the belief at the core of our Balanced Learning™ approach.Our exclusive early learning approach balances purposeful play with nurturing guidance from teachers to encourage curiosity, creativity, confidence, and compassion.We deliver more than a curriculum; it’s a life-changing early learning experience for children and their families. </a></p><p>I am excited to meet you and your family.</p>
