Deanna

I have been at Graceland for eight years.  I started as an assistant.  Currently, Geraldine and myself co-teach the 4 & 5 year olds and also co-supervise.  I received my Child Development Associate in 2012.  I enjoy teaching and I am excited to be a part of your child’s education!

I have two beautiful daughters who keep me very busy!

Steph

have been working in the Graceland kitchen since June 2010 preparing snacks and meals.  I love to cook so this job has been perfect for me. One of my favorite things about working here is watching the progress the kids make during the year.  Kids who eat nothing at the beginning learn to eat a lot of new things! I look forward to cooking for your children!
