Lead Teacher, Toddlers
As a life-long learner, Shaina strongly believes that positive experiences in early education will foster a love of continued education. A strong partnership between parent and program is imperative to give each child his best start in life! Shaina cherishes that the unique vision of Wildflower Cottage makes it feel less like a childcare center and more like an authentic community. She has delighted in the cooperative spirit among teachers and parents with diverse skills and interests.
Shaina joined our team in August 2018. She has studied Theatre at UNC-Greensboro and Theological Studies at Liberty University. Currently, Shaina is working towards her M. Ed. in Educational Leadership, Policy, and Advocacy in Early Childhood at UNC-Wilmington. Before joining Wildflower, Shaina worked in licensed childcare, in-home senior care, and in Children/Youth ministry.
