Destanee Tugwell

Teacher, Preschoolers

Destanee was born in Wisconsin but grew up around Hillsborough, NC where she met her husband. In September 2020, they welcomed their first child–a daughter, Reyna. During her free time, Destanee enjoys listening to music, traveling, and spending time with her family. 


Destanee has worked in other Reggio-inspired programs before. She quickly realized that this philosophy is her vocation and true passion.  She believes that you “do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” She is actively working toward an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education at Durham Tech. Destanee’s daily goal is to help each child in her path to feel strong, capable, and loved for the unique individuals they are! 

“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”
