What education, training, credentials and life experience do you have that help you in your work with preschoolers?
My educational training is in the field of Dental Hygiene. I attended Loyola University in New Orleans and worked as a hygienist for 12 years. I also taught Sunday School classes for four-year-olds for 12 years and was a Brownie and Girl Scout leader for 6 years. I am certified with North Carolina Early Childhood Credentials and over the last 30 years have taken advantage of numerous continuing educational opportunities through local and national conferences. I have 3 children and 9 grandchildren.

I love and thoroughly enjoy our little ones and enjoy getting to know their parents. I am also very fortunate to work with wonderful co-workers. St. Paul’s Preschool is a wonderful environment focused on the children that we have the privilege of being entrusted in our care.
