Meet the

Wonder Team!


It's a growing operation here at Wonder Academy! We aim to find creative and passionate individuals that strive to make a positive difference in the lives of young people through play, movement, and the arts. Read about our team below!



I believe that everyone has a calling and special place on Earth and that we all must do our part to be bold and to fulfill our calling everyday.


Being in the presence of children is its own reward. However, I love working with children on the preschool level simply because of the opportunity to mold children in a natural and genuine way.

Lead Teachers


My passion is working with the infants. I enjoy nurturing them as they grow and meet their individual milestones. 



I love how every child is so unique and they think in their own way! I can’t wait to continue growing to become the best teacher I can be.


I love being part of a child’s learning and growth in any way, big or small.

Kids delight me with their wit, humor, and personality.  They teach me as much as I teach them!

I have been a preschool teacher for 3 years. I love to teach and watch each and every one of my students blossom into the wonderful toddlers I know they can be.

I believe working with children is so fun and empowering. Being able to see children’s development and learning firsthand as they grow and flourish under your care is so rewarding.


I can't wait to teach your child to become more curious about the universe around us!

I enjoy the simple things in life, especially seeing happy faces on our little ones.

Enrichment Teachers

I'm a children's book and wildlife illustrator that's always trying to spark kid's interests in drawing! Illustrating is such a rewarding way to be creative and I desire for my students experience that same joy.



It's a joy teaching children dance classes because it gives them the opportunity to express themselves through the movement of art.
