We have fabulous teachers at Highland Kids After-school Program. We would love for you to get to know them all a little bit better through our blog posts. Who better to start with than our wonderful magnificent
Ms. Mary has had many years of experience teaching our young children. She has worked for 15 years as preschool director and teacher at Striplin Terrace UMC and now teaches our Kindergarten-1st grade class in our "yellow room".
Interesting things about Ms. Mary:
-She has A LOT of bees living at her house! Ms. Mary's husband, Kurt raises bees for honey! This is a fairly new enterprise, but Ms. Mary has let us sample the honey and it is super sweet!
- Ms. Mary owns an English Bulldog named McKenzie, who is a very (Ms. Mary's words) loving and very spoiled pup!
- Ms. Mary has two sons that are both planning on joining the Air Force. We thank them for their service ahead of time!
- Quoted from Ms. Mary- " I have always loved working with children. They are, in my opinion, truly blessings from God and it is a privilege to be a part of their lives."
We love Ms Mary's heart for children. It is apparent every time we look in her room and see happy faces interacting together; singing, reading, playing the "Opposite" game (one of their favorite games to play!) and just generally having a good time.
Stop in sometime. We'll be happy to introduce you to Ms. Mary and show off our awesome facilities.
