Lead Teacher

Ms. Amanda
Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm a huge fan of Little Jewels. I've been an employee with them since 2008 and I absolutely love it. The families, children, and co-workers make it a great place to work. When I'm not at work I'm enjoying my time with my husband. We were recently married so I'm learning all the ropes that come along with married life. We also have two cats who we rescued from the scary outside world. I love my boys, fur and all. Life is great!

Assistant Teacher

Hi, my name is DeNysha. I am from Kankakee, Illinois. I moved to Bloomington to further my education. I currently attend Heartland Community College. Before college, I worked at day care centers, and volunteered with Little League baseball and middle school volleyball teams. In my free time, I love to visit friends and family. I am excited to be a part of the Little Jewels family!
