Meet Miss Michelle
Hello! My name is Miss Michelle, and I am so excited to join the Children Central family as a Preschool Teacher, as of April 2022! I have been teaching for over ten years in classrooms ranging in age from Infants to Toddlers and Preschool, with most of the experience in Preschool. I love being the Lead Teacher of the Preschool class!
After many years in the corporate world, I decided my true passion was in Early Childhood Education. I volunteered for many of my daughter’s activities which included becoming a Girl Scout Leader/Treasurer, collaborating in the reading program in both first and second grades, being a committee member on Understanding our Differences, assisting in the development of fine motor skills in kindergarten, and coordinating relationships between classroom teachers and parents. After enjoying all of these roles related to education, I then returned to school and earned an Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education!
When not in the classroom, my second love is ‘re-exploring’ the city of Philadelphia, since moving back from Boston, Massachusetts. I love to wander around my new neighborhood with my rescue dog Charley Brown. I am also enjoying being close to my daughter who is attending Drexel University.
I cannot wait to spend the day in our Preschool classroom with your child, as we play and learn with creativity, autonomy and self-confidence!
Meet Miss Courtney!
Hi, I am Miss Courtney! I joined the Children Central family in February 2023. I am super excited to be working with your kiddos!
My passion for working with children started in 2015. I have had the opportunity to work as a lead and assistant teacher in classrooms of all ages. I love teaching and watching children learn and grow. I hope to inspire your children to be great and to help them explore the world in their own way!
I am also a mom to a wonderful daughter, Ellie Mae. Since becoming a mom 2 years ago, I see firsthand how precious these years are because they pass by so quickly.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. I also enjoy journaling, reading, and scrapbooking. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful children, families, and co-teachers here at Children Central.
