Meet Our Staff

Renee C.


I have a bachelor’s degree from Saginaw Valley in Sociology. I have been working at Love ‘n Learn for 12 years and have three beautiful children that grew up here. I believe all kids deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in. Love ‘n Learn strives to provide a lasting education in each child that comes through our center.

Tim G.

Assistant Director

I am the Assistant Director and Curriculum Coordinator here at Love ‘n’ Learn. I have been in early childhood education for 10 years now, working with everyone from Toddlers to School Age children. I have a passion for creating environments that help children develop powerful social emotional skills. I am a firm believer that Early Childhood Professionals have the ability to change the world. I am engaged to my beautiful fiancé Allie, and I have a pup named Auggie

Julie L.

I have been teaching at Love ‘n Learn for over 40 years and have my CDA. I love teaching because: I love watching a child learn something for the first time, watching them smile, roll over, sit up & giggle for the first time.

Beth R.

Hello, my name is Beth and I’m a Pre-K teacher. Love ‘n Learn has been a second home to me and my son Pauly. He is 6 years old and started at LnL as an infant. I love food, adventures, friends and family. I also love being in the classroom helping children grow and learn.



 I have been with Love ‘n Learn for almost a year now and have learned so much already. I plan on continuing to learn here over the next few years. I am working on getting my CDA to further my career and my long-term goal is to open a daycare of my own one day. I recently got engaged to my childhood friend and boyfriend of 6 years, and I look forward to getting married and starting a family of my own.



I am excited to be a new member of the Love ‘n Learn team. I just graduated high school this year and I am in college studying photography. I previously worked in the restaurant business. I look forward to working with and learning from kids while I am in college.

Sara T.

I have been teaching at Love ‘n Learn for three years. I have my CDA in early childhood education and am excited to continue my education. I have a fluffy cat named Allie that is my pride and joy and display many pictures of her in my classroom.

Grace C.

I have been teaching at Love ‘n Learn for almost a year. I love teaching at Love ‘n Learn because each day brings something new to the children and myself. The unexpected hug, smile or when they call my name brightens up my day!

I have worked in childcare for 6 years! I have my CDA and I am working towards my bachelors in Social Work. I enjoy working with children because every day they are willing to learn and experience new things. Every day is a new adventure!


I have been working at LnL for almost two years as the Kitchen Manager. I enjoy cooking delicious, kid friendly, and nutritious meals for your children. My baby girl, Jaliyah, is currently attending LnL and has been since she was 4 months old. Not only am I a proud employee of LnL, but also a proud parent!


Hi! I’m Michaela, the new Pre-K teacher! I graduated with my bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in Public Health and Child Psychology. I’m now getting my Master’s degree in Public Health from UT. I love college basketball, shopping, and Dunkin Donuts iced coffee, to name a few. 😊 I love getting to watch your children grow and getting to laugh and love with them. 😊


I have been working for LnL for almost 2 years now. I am also a mom to a wonderful little boy. I have an associates degree in Liberal Arts, and I studied psychology for about 4 years while in college. It’s my life dream to one day become a child psychologist. I hope to have a positive impact on every child I cross paths with!


I have been with Love ‘n Learn for 1 year. I teach for the smiles and the “I did it!” I teach for the giggles I can create and the tears I can stop. For every bad choice turned into good choices. I earned a BA in Psychology and Music from Heidelberg University. I went on to study Education at Lourdes College, earning a Licensure in Early Childhood Education.


My name is Vanessa and I’ve been with LnL for 2 years. Working with children is beautiful! Not only am I teaching them to be kind, independent, and adventurous, they are also teaching me!



 I am currently studying childhood psychology in hopes of getting my graduate degree. I love working with kids coming from so many different backgrounds so I can learn to help in every way possible. In my free time I go on hikes and play with my dog, Rose. I also enjoy painting, crocheting and reading mystery books.
