Hi! My name is Miss Donna. We've lived in Liberty Lake for about 20 years. I've been lucky enough to spend the last 12 or so years as a stay at home mom to two amazing children, Mason (18) and Reese (16), as well as two dogs Teddy (11) and Obi (1). Both my children attended LLCA for preschool and Pre-K, and I'm excited to be a part of the LLCA team. As my children have gotten older, I've taken time to volunteer in the Liberty Lake community schools and library. I behan as a substitue teacher at LLCA in the fall of 2019 and I'm thrilled to take on a more permanent position in 2020.
I love the imagination and creativity of little ones and feel privileged to be a part of your child's early education.
Miss Jennifer - Assistant Teacher
Hello! My name is Miss Jennifer. I was very blessed to have been a stay at home mom for 15 years to my three children (ages 18, 15, and 9). Prior to that I spent many years working with children in a variety of different preschool and nanny positions as well as volunteering in my children's school classes. My love has always been working with young children and I am looking forward to working with your preschoolers, helping to create a safe and loving environment where they can learn and grow as they become prepared with the skills they will need to head off to Kindergarten.
I have lived in Liberty Lake since 2003 (but born and raised in California) and absolutely love this wonderful community. My children keep me busy with all of their activities. We enjoy the summers here so much and spend a lot of our time at the lake, hiking, walking, camping or just playing at the park.
I love being a part of the Children's Academy team, and this will be my 4th year at LLCA. I can't wait for the year to start and to meet you and your children!
Miss Kelley - Assistant Teacher
Hi! My name is Kelley, and I'm super excited to be part of the LLCA team. Before joining LLCA, I worked with third and fourth graders in Reading Intervention for five years, and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work with little ones again. I love seeing their eyes light up when they discover something new, and it makes me truly happy to assist in their cognitive and social development.
I have lived in beautiful Liberty Lake for over 21 years with my amazing husband, Dan, and our wonderful daughters Alison (13) and Hailey (18). In our free time, we stay busy with volleyball, art, crafting and hiking.
I can't wait to meet you and your amazing children! Let the learning adventures begin!
Miss Kelsey - Assistant Teacher
Hi, my name is Kelsey. I am passionate about early childhood education. I enjoy helping kids learn new things and watching them grow in their confidence and newfound knowledge.
I was raised in Bothell. My family means the world to me, we are very close. I moved to Liberty Lake in 2012 with my (now) husband, Nate. We got married in 2015 and now live in Millwood with our cat, Fonz. We love spending time together with our friends and family, going camping and fishing, watching movies, and playing games. I enjoy being creative by taking pictures and playing with nail art.
Miss Tammy - Assistant Teacher
Hi, my name is Miss Tammy. I was born in raised in Idaho, and graduated from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston with a BS in elementary education. After graduating, I married the love of my life, Ben. In Lewiston, I was lucky enough to stay at home with my twins (a boy and a girl!) When they turned 3 and started pre-school, I got a job at the daycare run by the school. When my kids started elementary, I decided to put my degree to use and substitute teach. After 3 years of that, I found my dream job for the school district in a special-needs pre-school. Seven years ago, my husband got transferred to Spokane for his job, so we made the move up here to beautiful Eastern Washington. In 2015 I was asked to help work with a child in Pre-K for the afternoon class at Liberty Lake Childrens Academy, and fell in love with the school, kids, and co-workers. I have twin 23 year old children. I look forward to meeting your children, and can't wait to learn about them!
