I have worked with children almost my entire life and have been blessed to be at Chapel Hills Preschool for 13 years! I taught in the 3’s and the Pre-K for my first two years, then have been the Director for the last eleven years. I love working with families and kids, and watching those kids learn and grow academically and spiritually! I’ve been married for 25 years to my wonderful husband and we have 2 daughters who are 17 and 21 years old. We also have 1 dog, a ball python, and a gecko that live at our house. I hold a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Management, and a Colorado Large Center Director’s Certification.
Two’s Class Teacher
I am from South Carolina but I have come to love Colorado. I began at Chapel Hills in 2010. My favorite class is the Toddler room but I also enjoy the 2’s and 3’s. I became CO State qualified as a Lead teacher in 2013. I earned my B.A. degree in History and Communications from Winthrop College, Rock Hill, SC. I have 2 boys and my husband works for Lockheed Martin. Some of my hobbies include: cooking, historical genealogy (historical societies such as DAR, Colonial Dames, and the Magna Charta), health and fitness, reading, advocating for juvenile diabetes, my children’s activities and training our dog.
I have been at Chapel Hills Preschool for four years as a substitute and assisted in Toddler through Pre-K classrooms on a regular basis. I moved to Colorado when I was 12 and graduated from Air Academy High School. My husband and I have been married for 24 years; we have a 17 year old daughter and 11 year old son whom were both born in China. Our newest family member is a 2 year old greyhound named Hardy. We enjoy camping, playing board games and hockey (both of my kids play).Watching children grow and learn is one of my favorite things to do!
I have been blessed by the opportunity to teach here at Chapel Hills Preschool for seven years. I am a Colorado native and grew up loving all things “ARTSY”. As a young adult, I was a professional dancer with the Colorado Ballet. After numerous surgeries, I decided to choose a less strenuous career. I received my bachelor’s degree from UNC in Greeley, which is also where I taught in the public school system for 11 years. I had the opportunity to teach everything from physical education and middle school dance to Kindergarten, first, and second grade. My favorite grade level was always kindergarten and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach little ones again now with the freedom to express my love for the Lord! When I’m not at CHC Preschool you will find me chasing around my wonderful blended family of 10. My husband and I have eight children together ranging in age from 5 to 24. My cup runneth over,
I love being the floater! I’ve been married for 30 years and have four grown kids and three grandkids. I’ve been teaching or assisting since my youngest kids were in school full time. I love reading, gardening, and camping. Hanging with the preschool friends keeps me young and on my toes!
After graduating from Hastings College in Nebraska with a BA in Secondary English Language Arts Education, I spent seven years teaching high school English here in Colorado Springs before leaving the classroom to become a stay-at-home mom. During my time with Chapel Hills Preschool, I have assisted in 2’s, 3’s and PreK classrooms. I have also been able to complete the requirements needed to receive my Early Childhood Educator Qualification. My husband Adam and I have one daughter, Rebekah. We attend Pulpit Rock Church where I enjoy spending more time with preschoolers as the Awana Cubbies director and a Sunday morning storyteller. When we are not at school, Rebekah and I enjoy reading and baking together. The three of us together enjoy our weekly pizza & movie night, playing board games, and going out for ice cream.
