Ebony Bawier, Preschool
I have been working with kids for 1 and ½ years and what I most enjoy about them is their drive to learn new and different things. I decided to work with children because as a child, I always dreamt of becoming a teacher and I enjoy learning new things from kids. In my spare time I love to go shopping and to the movies with my children. My dream is to open my own daycare someday. A little known fun fact about me is I’m very goofy and I love to make people laugh.
Michele Hughes, Preschool
I have been working with kids for 20+ years and what I enjoy most about them is how sweet and innocent they can be. I love that I am a big part in modeling them daily. I decided to work with children because I truly believe this is where God needed me to be and I love it. In my spare time I work in my community serving the homeless and working with youth. My dream is to open a homeless shelter someday. A little known fun fact about me is that I am a very cheerful person. Additionally, I truly enjoy what I do. Working with children brings such joy to my heart. I thank God daily for using me.
