Leetonia Administrator & Small Wonders Education Coordinator
I have been married for 26 years and have 3 children. I have been a preschool teacher for almost 30 years and have worked for Small Wonders for almost 4 years. In my spare time I enjoy reading and going to yard sales where I can find interesting items to decorate my home with.
I obtained my associate degree from Kent State Salem, in Early Childhood
Education, and will be continuing on to obtain my Bachelor's degree as well. I
am certified in CPR/First Aid and have taken child safety courses and I have two and a half years experience in a daycare setting as a Toddler Lead Teacher. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching movies/TV series, game nights, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy cleaning and organizing everything. I love the color teal, green tea, squirrels, pizza, mac and cheese, brownies, and ice cream. I am beyond excited to become a part of such a wonderful, friendly staff and cannot wait to get to know you and your little
Assistant Infant & Toddler Teacher
My name is Courtney Horn. I am 25 years old. I am getting married December 14th of 2019 and I am very excited and cannot wait. I am the assistant teacher in the toddler/ infant room at the Leetonia center. I've been with small wonders for about 6yrs now. I have my CDA credential. I love watching the children laugh, play, grow and learn more. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me.
School Age Teacher
My Name is Alexis Bable. I've been with Small Wonders since November 2018. I am currently a student attending YSU in my last semester of the Early Childhood Education program. I am not just a student and a teacher, but also a mother and a wife. Family is very important to me. I love spending time with my own family, as well as meeting all of our wonderful families here at Small Wonders! I am so happy that I have the opportunity to teach and interact with littles every day, this truly is a passion for me. I am looking forward to continuing to learn and improve as an educator. To me, the most exciting part of teaching is having the power to impact little minds and lives everyday. Something I have learned from my time working with children is that teachers are forever learners, I cannot wait to see what it has in store!
Hi, I'm Miss Alyssa and I'm looking forward to some learning, fun and adventures! I can't wait to learn all about your little ones. I have a 5 year old daughter and a 2 month old son. Prior to Small Wonders, I worked at the Goddard School in Boardman as well as ran an in-home daycare from my house. I'm currently working towards my CDA. I like to DIY crafts and spend time with my family.
I have been working for Small Wonders since its opening in 2012. I started at our Greenford Center as a floater and soon became an assistant teacher. In June 2013 the opportunity arose for me to move to our Leetonia Center where I became a lead teacher and administrator. During my time with Small Wonders, I obtained my BA in Early Childhood Education with a Minor in Child Development. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, cuddling with my kitties, and spending time with my family and friends.
