    Director - 13 Years

    Hello my name is Max Emery, and I wanted to tell you a little about myself.

    I grew up in Corvallis, Oregon and moved here in the summer of 2000. I have lived in Texas for 19 years. I now consider it my home. I have worked for this franchise since the Summer of June 2008. When I joined the team, I never considered making it my career. Over the past 9 years I have discovered that I have a passion for this industry and cannot imagine myself doing anything else.

    In regards to my education, I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business MGMT at the University of St. Thomas. I am happy to be back with Primrose School of the Westchase District and look forward to what the future brings.

    Lead Education Coach - 14 years

    My name is Felicia Molina. I have a son named Jayden, who is my pride and joy. I’ve always had a passion for working with children. Seeing the smiles on their face melts my heart. I have been working in the Early Childhood Education for more than 17 years. Ten of those were spent with our sister school Primrose of Eldridge Parkway. I believe in Primrose’s classroom structures and curriculum are the best. It helps children become more confident in their learning abilities, and a better person overall. I started off as a Teacher in the Early Pre-School program. I was honored to become a member of The Leadership Team, and becoming an Educational Coach for the Early Pre-School and Pathways Program. I am delighted to be here and be a part of The Primrose School of The Westchase District Leadership Team.

    Patricia Graves

    Nutrition Specialist - 13 Years

    My name is Patricia Graves and I began my career with the Primrose School of Kelliwood in 2011. In January, 2017, I transferred here to our Westchase District location.

    I retired from the Alief Independent School District Nutrition Services Department in 2005 after serving over 20 years as the Operations Supervisor and eventually as Manager of the Nutrition Services and Recycling Center.

    I have a vast wealth of knowledge as it relates to school food service and an even greater passion for preparing and serving healthy meals to children as well as staff.

    I value the importance of eating well-balanced meals and I truly believe that if a child and even adults have healthy eating habits he or she will perform better and will grow to their full potential.

    My motto is: "To be Happier, eat Healthier!"

    Sidney DeWalt

    Infant Mentor - 5 Years

    Hello my name is Sidney DeWalt. I wanted to tell you a little about myself.

    I have been in childcare for almost 4 years now. I am also a proud grandmother of 6 and a GREAT grandmother of 2. In my class I want children to feel comfortable and secure in the learning environment. I enjoy supporting children as they develop critical thinking and social skills. Of all the age groups I most enjoy working with babies. Every interaction is critical in their development and I am so proud to be a part of those moments.

    April Abanathy

    EPS & Pathways Mentor - 11 Years

    I’m April Abanathy, and I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.

    I have worked in early childcare since 2008. I attended Prairie View A&M University and studied management information systems at Lamar University. In my class, I want my children to feel safe and loved. I enjoy watching children interact with each other and seeing their faces light up as they learn something new. One of my favorite experiences is teaching a child how to write their name. How excited they get when they write on their own makes them feel so proud. I enjoy doing what I do as well as teaching a child new things; after all, they are the future generation. It’s amazing what an impact we can have in their lives. I used to be encouraged as a child by my teacher as well. Using your imagination is inspiring. It allows us to learn through play. Llama llama books were my favorite growing up. Billy the Duck is my favorite Primrose character because I love to dance and sing silly songs.

  • Lozetta Davis, Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten Mentor - 5 Years

    Lozetta Davis

    Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten Mentor - 5 Years

    Hello my name is Lozetta Davis and I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.

    I have had the joy of working with children since 1994. I love working with all age groups. I have experience working with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, elementary and intermediate age children.

    I hold a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and have taken refreshers in Family and Child Development.

    In my classroom I want children to feel loved, happy and free to be themselves in their learning environment. What I enjoy most about teaching is their eagerness to learn everyday and the chance to introduce new concepts to them.

    My favorite children’s book is from Head to Toe. It encourages imagination, and teaches out children to never give up.
