I have been a part of the Apple Tree family for 8 years now. Although I have been familiar with the school and teachers for much longer being my that my Mother had previously worked at Apple Tree for seven years. I have a two year old boy whom I love to spend my days with. What I like the most about working at Apple Tree is the special relationship I get to create with each child and knowing that I have played a role in their education.
I've been working at Apple Tree for 15 years now! I have a son Louis who is 24 years old and a Daughter Kayla who is 17 years old. Both are graduates of Apple Tree Preschool. I always felt very comfortable leaving my children at Apple Tree, knowing the teachers would treat them just as I would. I love my job because of the children. Teaching is honestly the most fulfilling job I can think of.
