Amy’s passion for early childhood education started early when she first worked at a childcare facility when she was 16 years old. She then went on to get her degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in early childhood education from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri. She taught Kindergarten for one year before moving to Pinedale where she was the director of Pinedale Preschool for 8 years. She took a year off to be with her own kids and then spent six more years at the Pinedale Preschool as a substitute, teacher’s aide, and then a preschool teacher. She is excited to once again be in the roll or director here at BEEP. Amy believes the most important part of any early childhood education program is the kids and families they get to work with every day. She is passionate about building programs that support parents and provide the best care possible to the children they are responsible for. She loves that the primary goal here at BEEP is to make children feel safe and comfortable while supporting their growth and development.
