“Children do not care how much you know, until they know you care.” Teddy Roosevelt
I cannot recall a time in my life when I did not care for children. As early as my teen years I was taking care of the neighborhood children and planned to be a school teacher. As it turned out I found myself a stay at home mom with three pre-school children. In an attempt to find sanity in my life I discovered a Kids Day Out childcare program where I could work part time and my children would receive the social interaction we all desperately needed. It did not take long for me to fall in love with my first classroom of four-year-old eager minds. I’d like to say I was a natural, but truthfully, I wish I knew then what I’ve learned over the past fifteen years about Early Childhood Education. My early classrooms benefited from a teacher who deeply cared for them, and that heart paired with the quality balanced learning approach Primrose offers is the dream for any parent. I am truly honored to bring my passion, knowledge, and experience to the Primrose team. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of teaching in the classroom for almost every age group. I enjoyed four years working with Child Care Licensing to ensure the safety of children in childcare. I worked under a Head Start grant and supervised up to ten locations and six directors. I recently enjoyed working under the Texas Rising Star grant as a mentor to twelve facilities where I coached teachers and advised directors. In addition to completing a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Education with a specialty in Social Sciences at Wayland Baptist University, I am a Child Care Health Consultant, Texas Trainer, CLASS observer, and now the Director at Primrose School of Schertz. I bring my experience in the childcare field, eighteen years of parenting and the same care and passion I’ve always held for children. We know learning begins from day one of life which is why we will give your infant to school age child a rich learning environment for them to wonder, discover and explore their world alongside a caring teacher who will guide them to reach beyond their imagination.
I hope to meet you soon,
