Administrative and Support Team

Ms. Sheryl – Administrative Director

Education
I have been involved in the world of early childhood for over 35 years and have watch it evolve into what it is today. I have completed several Early Childhood courses and credentials.

Experience
As you can well imagine I have served in several different positions over the course of 35 years, including kitchen, bus driving, teaching, and directing. When I think about the plethora of families I have had the privilege to know and share life with, some of whom I am still friends with today, others whom I knew only for a season, I am so very thankful. Life in early childhood is unexpected and busy and the key is flexibility!

Personal
My husband and I have been married for 41 years, we have three children, two of whom are married and three, almost four grandchildren. (Another little granddaughter will join us in February!) I especially enjoy spending time with my family, near and far, traveling, photographing nature, and will go out of my way for a beautiful sunrise or sunset!
