Ashley C.- Site Manager, PLC 1 

Howdy! My name is Ashley and I am the Site Manager at Prodigy Learning Center. I began working with children 15 years ago and continued my passion for childcare since then. 

Teaching children and helping them grow has always been something I have held very close to my heart. I have worked with all ages of children from birth to school age. I enjoy working with the after school program and summer camps because I get to see them grow and learn new things.

martha m. - Teacher (TK 5)

Howdy! My name is Martha and I am a transitional Kindergarten teacher at PLC. I retired from twenty-seven years of teaching in public schools in order to move closer to my family in the BCS area. My teaching experience includes Head Start, ESL, second grade, fifth grade and twenty-four years teaching first grade. I have several years of experience teaching four year olds.

Teaching children has always been a fascinating adventure. Watching how quickly they learn new information and they question concepts that they need more facts about in order to clarify the things they do not understand.

My degrees include a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with minors in Psychology and Math and a Masters in Education Administration.

I am excited to be apart of the Prodigy Learning Center staff. This age group will be lots of fun, as they seem to want as much knowledge as possible. I love this age group and look forward to knowing each child better.

Joanna (1).jpg

Joanna - teacher (3 year olds) 

Hello! My name is Joanna and I am a teacher for the three-year-old classroom at Prodigy Learning Center. I just moved to College Station from Kansas, which is where I grew up. I graduated last May from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

In the past, I have worked with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and Kindergarteners. I believe that every child deserves the best education and caring environment in order to lay the path for a bright future. I love to watch curiosity and discovery take place as a child learns through play!

 A fun fact about me is that I have a vision impairment that causes my eyes to look away from what I am actually looking at. So, you might notice that I don’t make direct eye contact or that I use a hand-held magnifier to read small print. No Worries! I make adaptations for myself and it has never been a problem with caring for and teaching children.

 I look forward to being a part of Prodigy Learning Center’s team and getting to know the children and families.

I absolutely love teaching the young minds of this generation. I currently have 4 years of teaching experience. I am working on pursuing a Montessori degree. My main goal is to hopefully open up a school of my own. One of the things that I love about teaching is when a parent comes to you amazed about what their child has learned. The look of excitement on their face and knowing that you have helped this child grow is what warms my heart.
