Mrs. Sarah

Department Leader and Lead Teacher

Welcome! I am Mrs. Sarah and am excited to start another year in the TLC Preschool! I am a former competitive gymnast and have been coaching gymnastics, from preschool through competitive teams, for 37+ years. I am a graduate of UNC-Greensboro and began teaching in the classroom setting during my college career. Ultimate Kids - Home of Tumblebees became a part of my life after college where I met my husband, Dan (aka. Mr. Dan). I have found the perfect job combining my love for coaching gymnastics with my degree in early childhood development and education. Our preschool was developed with that wonderful combination in mind and I am pleased to be a part of it!

Mrs. Holly

Lead Teacher Pre-K Classes

I began my career in teaching at GTCC Children's Center while earning my degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a B-K teaching licensure from UNCG. I taught Pre-K and Kindergarten in Orange County for 13 years, but stepped away from the classroom for a while to spend time with my three children. I am so excited to get back into the classroom as a lead teacher in the TLC Preschool Pre-K class.
