Ms. Elaine, Lead Teacher and
Kids Way Program Director

I joined Kids Way in 2016.
I have my Child Development Associate (CDA), and many years of continued education approved by the Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families. In addition, I have training in Master Teacher, Leadership, and True Colors Personality Training. I have volunteered in children’s classrooms since 1984. I have been a Kindergarten teacher as well as, owning my own Preschool.  
I love camping, gardening, and spending time with my husband of almost 50 years, and our dog, Benny. We love spending time with our family which includes our six children, their spouses, and our four grandchildren.
When working with children you have to opportunity to view the world from their eyes. My focus is to teach through each child’s individual learning style and to celebrate each child.

Miss Andrea
PM Teacher Assistant

My name is Andrea. I joined Kids Way in 2023. I have a Communication Degree from Eastern Washington University. For the last 16 years, I have been a stay at home mom for my two boys. I was a volunteer in their classrooms from Preschool through 5th Grade. My favorites over the years was being the Art Docent and serving on the PTA Board.
For the last few years I have been the Co-Director of Operations, for my youngest son's travel baseball team. We have team players ranging from 9 to 15 years old. It's been a great learning experience. I love having the opportunity to work with families and with children of various ages.

I knew when I decided to "go back to work" that I wanted to work with preschool age children. It is the most amazing age! They are so excited to learn and I am so happy to be part of this time in their lives.
