I started at Small Wonders in May 2018. In both high school and college I have been involved in various musical activities including marching band, show choir, and musicals. Additionally I continue to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education at Youngstown State University. Other than that, the most important things
to me are my family and my church.

summer School Age Teacher


I was with Quaker Community Preschool and Daycare Center for 29 years.
When Leslie and Small Wonders took over, I became the Administrator as well as the Pre-kindergarten teacher. What can I say.... I love it! I get to go to work at my job everyday and have fun. Everyday is different and the things the children come up with are just so funny. It is very rewarding to know that we are helping the children not only educationally but also by helping them feel confident with themselves. We make sure the children have fun and there is laughter everywhere.

I worked for Columbiana County Head Start and also as a para-educator for
the Salem School system before starting at Small Wonders in March 2018. I live in Leetonia and have a 3 year old grandson who also attends Small Wonders. My hobbies are riding ATV's, drag
racing, photography, and working in my flowerbeds.

I started with Small Wonders, January 2018 when Quaker Daycare
closed. I have been in the childcare field for 24 years, doing everything from office work to all ages of children. Currently I am the toddler teacher. It is a joy to teach them, and watch them develop and grow. They amaze me daily with all of the things they say and do. It is a true pleasure to be with them.
