Hello! I’m Shannon Allard and have been in the Early Childhood Education world for 16 years. I knew I wanted to work with children and started working while still in high school at a local infant/toddler center. My love of early education grew, and I studied at San Francisco University to become director. I have worked all positions in a center and take pride in my roles over the years. Now I look forward to helping your family throughout the early childhood education days with us.
Hello, my name is Elena. I was born in Rome, Italy. I came to the United States when I was very young. I became interested in teaching preschool after occasionally accompanying my mother, a preschool teacher to work. During the summer, I would volunteer at her preschool, and from there, developed a love for children. I have worked with children for over 20 years, with ages ranging from infants, all the way to school age. I have also been a behavioral therapist for children with Autism. Not only am I a staff member here at Amazing Creations Preschool, but I am also a parent. I have a beautiful four-year-old who attends Amazing Creations, and she absolutely loves it! In my spare time, I love enjoying time with my family, and crafting.
Curriculum Coordinator/Toddler Teacher
I was born in Lima, Peru. I came to the USA in 1997. My first priority then, was to learn English as fast as I could. I learned English in 6 months by reading books and using an English to Spanish dictionary. I always knew I wanted to work with children. I started working with children in 2007. I have been married to my husband Patrick since 2011. We had a little girl in 2013, who also attends Amazing Creations and she loves it! I joined the Amazing Creations family in 2016 and I am so glad I did, I love working here. I am currently working on my AA in child development and liberal arts. In my spare time I like to craft, hang out with my family, and read.
I have been teaching at Amazing Creations Preschool since Fall of 2014. I have been working with children since 1998. I have been a nanny, worked at travel summer camps, travel science camps, and I also used to be a lead teacher at My Gym. I really enjoy watching children grow and learn. In my spare time, I enjoy playing recreational softball, and spending time with my family, especially my sons.
Hello, I am so excited to start this school year as a Pre-K teacher and to see how God will work through the students this year! I love working with this age group. My favorite part is to see the excitement on their faces when they achieve a skill and get to match their excitement with them. Although my background was banking, my love for teaching started when my daughter was born. Young children have open minds and curiosity and are receptive to teaching which makes a lasting impact on their lives. I believe every child is unique, and I love learning things from them like finding joy everyday in small things. My favorite activities to do with them is reading books and doing circle time. In my free time I like to spend time with my family.
I’ve always wanted to work with children in some way. My daughter Hope (now 4 — a student at Amazing Creations) was born with a Genetic condition (2q37.3 deletion syndrome) that caused her major complications as an infant. I was very active in her early development (which included speech therapy and physical therapy) and learned I really enjoyed helping children develop and knew I wanted to work with young children. I started my early childhood education path here at Amazing Creations as an intern over a year ago. Then I became a part time aide/sub, and recently became a full-time teacher in the Pre-K classroom. Outside of spending time with my daughter, family and friends, I enjoy Car racing (especially Midgets and Sprint Cars), country music, cooking, wrestling, writing and editing.
My name is Chitra, and I have had the privilege of being a part of Amazing Creations Preschool since 2003. As a mother of two beautiful daughters, I realized how important their early years were, and the positive impact I had on their growth. I was fortunate to have been able to stay at home for several years to nurture them and watch them grow. I am thankful and feel blessed for the opportunity to work in a nurturing, loving environment, where children can learn and experience new challenges that will help build their confidence while they play. I look forward to continued success and new discoveries with an amazing team of teachers at Amazing Creations!
Hello, my name is Russell. I have been a teacher’s aide at Amazing Creations Preschool for ten years. In my spare time I like to sky dive and run marathons.
