Pre-K Teacher I have my degree from the University of Cincinnati, as well as several years of experience teaching at both the preschool and elementary levels. I am excited about working with your child and helping them begin a lifetime love of learning. The first couple of weeks of school will be spent learning about our classroom, school and classmates.

I feel that BCLC is an incredible learning center where the teachers truly help your child learn and grow not only academically, but emotionally, socially, and spiritually as well.
