Meet Our Teachers
The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.
I excitedly started in this field and on this adventure one year ago in March 2019. My daughter was coming to Glocester Childhood Center since she was 15 months old. I quickly fell in love with the staff and the school as I watched my daughter grow with them. Once I heard the previous owner would be closing the center, it broke my heart. My daughter would be losing all her friends and I would have to find somewhere new without the teachers that I loved and trusted. I was fortunate enough to have three of my teachers trust me with their employment future and stay to help guide me on this new journey.
With a nurturing personality and hands-on approach towards learning, we are thrilled to have Miss Ashley as a part of our team. Her commitment to childhood education makes her the perfect Director. Miss Ashley was the Assistant Director for the previous owner and was promoted to Director due to her hard work, dedication, and knowledge of the field. All of us here at GCC are extremely blessed to have her to turn to. Ashley is an incredible asset to GCC and has been in Early Childhood Education for 6 years. She has her RIELDS Certification and has been lead teacher for Toddlers and Preschool 3.
Education Coordinator & Pre-K Teacher
Miss Rachel currently holds a Bachelors in Elementary Education and has her RIELDS certification. She has been in an early childhood setting for over 7 years and has been a Lead Preschool Teacher since 2015. Miss Rachel's kindheartedness and love for developing young minds has been a great asset to our Pre-K program. She also oversees and coordinates personal development classes for herself and all staff to ensure we are all continuously learning.
Preschool 3 Teacher
Miss Lauren has worked in child education since 2010. She has worked with children of all ages and abilities. She is hard working, flexible, and contributes to our team's success. She is great at applying positive reinforcement to redirect negative behaviors. She is currently working on her professional development to include her RIELDS certification.
Miss Tori has been in the childcare field since 2016 and has been teaching strictly toddlers for over 2 years. Her dedication, hard working and fun loving personality is a perfect fit for our active little toddlers! She is absolutely astounding when it comes to potty training and preparing toddlers for their transition to early preschool. She is currently working on completing the remainder of the RIELDS and is on her way to her certification.
Miss Jo is incredibly loving to all; she is our Infant teacher with a heart of gold. I was extremely lucky to have her stay along from the previous owner to my ownership. She has over 20 years’ experience working in early childhood specializing in Infants and Toddlers. She is currently working on her RIELDS Certification.
Behind every good teacher is a great teacher's aide.
Miss Destiny, Miss Crystal & Miss Jillian
