 Mrs. Traci

Director 

 

My  name is Traci. I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for 25 years. I love what I do and know this is the work God has called me to do. I love how everyday is different when working with young children. I love their curiosity and wonder for the world around them. I love watching children grow, change and grasp new concepts.  As a Director, I have a hands on approach. My staff and I work as a team. I believe in relationship building and getting to know my staff and the families we serve.  I feel so blessed and honored to spend the day with your children.

 

My educational background is in Early Childhood Education and Business. I have an AS in Early Childhood Education, a BA in Organizational Management with a minor in Early Childhood.  

I am also passionate about sharing God's love for us.  My hope is that the Good News of Jesus Christ will transform the lives of the families we serve at Footprints.

I am wife and a mother to three sons. I love my family time.  

In my free time, I like to be outside in nature. I love big trees. I like to camp, hike, swim and just sit in the stillness of my God's beautiful creation.  I also enjoy cooking, reading and learning about nutrition and DIY projects. 

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have eternal life"

My educational journey includes 42 ECE units, graduating college with an Associate in Science Degree in Child Development along with two specialization certificates. Infant Toddler Care and Administration/ Director of Private Preschools.
Additionally, I hold two Credentials from the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing; Child Development Master Teacher Credential and Child Development Site Supervisor Credential.

 

My experience journey includes 25 years of classroom teaching with two of those years being dedicated as a Preschool Director.
My passion for teaching the little ones started in my teenage years when I volunteered at the Bay Area Crisis Nursery Center. Years later I volunteered at my church in their nursery and taught Kindergarten age girls in a biblical girl scout type program for over 13 years.

 

I believe the Lord God has called me to take care of His little ones for a time and I feel truly blessed. I believe in building positive relationships with my little friends and their families. I believe in positive reinforcement and providing a loving environment
 

Personally, I am a Mom of two adult daughters, a son-in-law and a Grandma of two boys. One grandson is flourishing on the Autism Spectrum. I have 14 siblings total between my biological parents and adoptive parents, as well as many nieces and nephews. I have been remarried for the past 8 years. I enjoy coffee, blogging, walking, antiques, and genealogy and family tree research.

Mrs. Natalie

Nutrition Coordinator & Before/After Care 

My name is Natalie. I have worked on and off with children for nearly 20

years, taking time off to focus on school and family. In 2015, I received my A.S. in Early Childhood Education from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA.  At 13 years old, I gave my heart to the Lord and began attending church with my aunt and uncle. Now as an adult, I attend Praise Chapel Christian Fellowship in Concord with my family.  I have four children, Jeremiah, Joshua, Sarah, and Nathan. My children have inherited my love of reading, singing, writing, and of the Performing Arts. I also love coffee and chocolate and enjoy the rare opportunity to meet up with friends. I truly feel blessed that the Lord has provided me with my family, my church family, and the opportunity to work at Footprints Preschool.
