Hi! My name is Miss Tori. I grew up in Moon Township with my mom and two older sisters. I graduated from Moon Area High school in 2018, and after high school I studied Early Childhood Education at CCAC. All throughout high school I took Child Development classes, where I discovered a love and passion for teaching young learners. When I have free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to camp, and relaxing watching Netflix and YouTube.
Hi! My name is Miss Ashley and I’m from Charleston, South Carolina and then moved to PA and grew up in Moon Township. I graduated from High School in California in 2009, and then made my way back to PA. I live in Beaver County with my husband and our son Jackson. I worked as an orthodontist assistant for 9 years but after my son was born I decided it was time for a career change! I am excited to learn and grow with all of the children at C&M!
My name is Chelsea. I have been working in childcare just over 8 years. I live in Oakdale and graduated from West Allegheny High School in 2015.

Hi, I’m Riley! I was born and raised in Minnesota. I’ve worked in childcare for two years but taught CCD on a volunteer basis for five years prior. I’m currently pursuing a degree in Graphic Information Technology and User Experience. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family. I also spend my free time creating paintings, drawings, sculptures, and other mediums. My mission in the classroom is to bring creative ideas and projects to life in an engaging and educative way. I wanted to become a teacher because I love learning about the way kids see the world around them through their first-hand accounts. Their unique thoughts and ideas always bring new and refreshing perspectives to life!

I love to spend time with my family and my two dachshunds. I currently love wedding planning with my fiancé, watching football, chasing the best view of a sunset, and sitting around the fire with friends. Something that may surprise you about me is that I would spend my entire life outside if bugs didn’t exist! I am thrilled to be able to be a part of your child’s early years!

My youngest daughter, Harper, has already declared C&M is the “best school ever!” and I look forward to us making some memories here!
Hi my name is Miss Mercedes! I have been working in childcare for 7+ years! I have worked with children from 0-18 years old.

Older Pre-K Teacher
Hi families, I’m Miss Terrian! I’m originally from Weirton, West Virginia. I graduated from Fairmont State University and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I come from a 6+ year background of social work, predominantly working with at risk youth and juvenile delinquents. I decided to explore the child care field after having my sweet baby boy in October 2020. Prior to joining C&M, I taught Pre-K for a year. Over the years I have encountered children from all different walks of life. I truly believe that every child is unique in their own way & that’s what makes them each so special. I am very eager to get to know all of the C&M kiddos and find fun, creative ways to help them all learn and grow!
