Noticed anything different? We have some new faces on campus! We have hired two new teachers to join our team.
· Ms Shawni comes to us with over 13 years of classroom experience and a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She looks forward to including her youngest daughter in our pre-k program. With the unique ability to be a successful substitute (good subbing takes a special talent!) and a background in summer camp and afterschool, Shawni has joined our team to assist our busy program with an extra set of hands on a day to basis.
· Ms Cassie comes to us with several years of preschool experience under her belt and enthusiastically looking for an unlocked opportunity to further her own education degree with a positive effect on children during their early years. Cassie has joined Ms Tangie in our prek program and currently shifts to assist our preschool team during the afternoon.
Please take the time to introduce yourself to both our new members of LLC!
