About Ann

I am mom to 3 beautiful adult kids and have worked in early childhood education for 30+ years in lots of different ways. I’ve worn the hats of teacher, program director, college professor, children’s pastor, teacher trainer, parent coach and autism consultant over the years. I live in Texas with my husband, Kent, and rascally dog, Cooper. I enjoy traveling to new places, zipping around town on my Yamaha Vino 125 and hanging out with friends and family….especially on the back porch!

About Megan

I’m a former first grade teacher, now stay-at-home mom. I have experience working in childcare centers, teaching ESL, and teaching in charter schools. I live in Minnesota with my husband, Josh, daughter Cadence and son, Luka. I love to bake, travel, and be outside.
