I am so happy and honored to be the founder and director of Peas in a Pod Learning Center of College Station! Founding and growing Peas in a Pod Learning Center has been a wonderful journey that began 20 years ago when I began my first job as a certified teacher. To prepare for this journey, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Studies & Psychology (Counseling), and a second Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I am a certified Master Reading Teacher EC-12, and have enjoyed a wonderful career in educating young children since 2000!
After teaching 1st grade and Kindergarten for 8 years as a certified teacher in 4 major public school districts in Texas, I completed 5 wonderful years of service in College Station I.S.D. With the help of my husband, I was blessed to resign from teaching public school to stay at home with our son and twin daughters, and begin operating a registered childcare business in our home for 2 years. It was an awesome journey which led us to the opening of the licensed childcare facility here in our home town 10 years ago called Peas in a Pod Learning Center of College Station.
Our vision here at Peas in a Pod Learning Center is to serve our community by providing a high quality of care for young children where parents can trust that their child is safe. Parents can even view their child in class and outdoors on live webcams from their mobile device! Our mission is to develop our students academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually in a loving and nurturing Christian environment. We have an amazing team of teachers and staff here and we are thanking God for His abundant blessings as we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year! We LOVE it here, and we think that you will, too!
When we opened the doors of Peas in a Pod Learning Center in 2010, our oldest son was only 3 and our twins were 1 year old. 5 years later we welcomed our youngest son into our family. They all 4 benefited from our dual language Kinder Ready Program, and were fully prepared entering College Station Schools. Our 3 older kids are now beginning their 3rd year, and our youngest is looking forward to his 2nd year at the International Leadership of Texas, thriving in a trilingual educational environment.
