Meet the Busy Bee Staff:
Miss Kat, Teacher
My friends call me Miss Kat. I have been with Derry Discovery Days since 2013. I am a wife and mom of a son and a daughter. I enjoy watching my preschoolers grow and sharing that growth with their parents. Outside of teaching I enjoy photography as a side business, traveling, chocolate, and most of all making people smile
Miss Ashley, Teacher Aide
I am so excited to be a part of the three-year-old classroom. I have been a stay-at-home mom to three awesome kiddos: Casey (12), Connor (10), and Anna (7). Before staying home I was a preschool teacher. As a family we enjoy boating, going to the beach, visiting our cabin in the Poconos, and most of all spending time together. I look forward to helping enrich the lives of all the children at Derry Discovery Days.
Miss Laura, Teacher Aide
I have lived in the Hershey area for three years with my husband and two children, ages 12 and 9. I absolutely love this community and look forward to spending time helping the Busy Bees learn and grow. In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering in the community, going to the beach with my family, exercising, shopping and cheering on my kids on their sports teams. I have a background in marketing and advertising but my love for children has led me to this wonderful job!
