Hello! My name is Tammy and I am the lead teacher in the Infant 2 classroom. I have been married for 26 years. I just became a grandma on August 24 at 9:37am to a baby boy named Landon. I also have two German Shepherds at home. Their names are Brutus and Chanel. I am looking forward to watching your children grow and learn new things. We are going to have a great year!

Hi, my name is Missie. I recently joined the team in March 2019, after coming out of recovery following a kidney transplant. Previously, I attended Stark State College of Technology and obtained an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I worked at RiverTree Christian School for 11 years - needless to say, I have a lot of experience with each age group. I believe the reason parents should trust me with their children is because I will take care of them like they are my own. I am a very dedicated and reliable employee, and I strive to give parents the reassurance they need to continue their daily routines. My belief is that every child can learn as long as they are given the right opportunity. My boyfriend Joe and I have been together for quite a while. When I am not working, I like to spend my free time with my family. I attend John Knox Presbyterian Church, and I am looking forward to my new journey here at Interfaith Campus Ministries. I believe God called me here to be a servant of Christ and that's what I intend to do.

This teacher enjoys playing in the sandbox and painting outside and sometimes even looking for bugs!
