Meet our Lead Cheerful Chipmunks Teacher:
Ms. Heather J.: Lead Teacher
My name is Ms. Kendra. I am excited to be the Lead Teacher in the Cheerful Chipmunks Classroom.
I graduated from Rockford High School and from Spring Arbor University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I have 5 years of experience at a previous childcare center and more volunteering with children at church.
Our classroom goal is to have a positive impact on our young children! Helping them learn and grow through new experiences, getting to know them, while creating a developmentally appropriate environment. It is a joy to see the smile on a child’s face when they have learned something new. Thank you for the opportunity to teach and get to know your child.
