Favorite TLE® Character:
Two Plus Toucan

I have been a childcare teacher since 2016 and have been with The Learning Experience since 2019. I have my associates degree in music education and my credentials. I always wanted to be a teacher and love helping children learn and create. I have been in multiple age groups over the years but my absolute favorite is the toddlers, I love that they are starting to find their own personalities. I like bringing creativity into the classroom for a fun learning environment. I was born in Oklahoma and grew up in Michigan, we moved to Mooresville when I was in 2002 and it has been my home ever since. My fiance and I have two dogs (Dixie and Annabelle) and a cat (Panda) at home that we love so much. My hobbies include drawing, painting, and baking. I have been working since I was 14 and childcare has definitely been my favorite.

Favorite TLE® Character:
Grace Charity

I was a cosmetologist before I became a teacher in early childhood. After volunteering at a preschool, to assist my sister in setting up her classroom, I became interested in completing an education and through experience to support children with learning. Now I have gained about 12 years experience with engaging with the little ones. During early years growing up, I was thought how to give care to family members younger than me. Education in child development guided me to give the best engagement to help children succeed with enjoyment.
