Hi, my name is Kristie. I have four children, a 14-year-old, and three adult children. I have been married to the love of my life for 23 years. I have my CDA and have been working in childcare for 27 years. Throughout this time I have worked with all age groups however I am currently the lead teacher in the infant classroom here at TLE. I love seeing the babies develop and grow throughout the year they are with me!

Phoebe Phonics

I have been in childcare since 1994, with the last five years being at TLE. I have worked with children of all ages, but my favorite age group is toddlers. I started with TLE as a Toddler teacher. After about a year and a half with the company, I was approached with the opportunity to become the chef. I honestly wasn’t sure if it was for me but I agreed to give it a try. Over three years later I am loving it! I love getting to see and interact with all the children every day. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, read, do crafts, and practice yoga.

I first started at TLE in October of 2019. I started in Infant classroom and now I am now the Lead Teacher in Toddler A. I have always loved working with children and it’s so rewarding to watch them grow and learn. I wake up every day looking forward to coming to my class and seeing all of the smiling faces. I was born in Jacksonville, FL but have traveled and lived all over. I am very outdoorsy and spend my free time hiking, exploring, kayaking, and taking beautiful photos.

I have been with TLE since February 2019. I was born in Dixie, GA, and am married with 5 children and 4 grandchildren. I teach in the Twaddler classroom where I have been since I started with TLE. As a teacher, I have found it very rewarding to see the children grow and develop. The smiles and hugs they give me make my heart smile. I spend my free time baking and spoiling my grandchildren.

My name is Jeannie Lee. I am a mom of four and have always loved being with children. I earned my National Child Development Associate and began my preschool teaching career 7 years ago. I am now the lead VPK teacher in preschool 2A and am passionate about working with 4 and 5-year-olds. The most exciting thing to me about working with preschoolers is watching them fall in love with learning.
