Ms. Tracey

Education
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I graduated from Griffith University in Queensland, Australia in 1992.  I love learning and am always excited to challenge myself to learn and grow as a teacher.  Most recently, I have been studying early childhood education courses online.

Experience
I have worked at Kids Junction since 2008.  During this time, I have been teaching four year old kindergarten.  I taught elementary education in Australia for over ten years.  I have always enjoyed teaching and have taught people of all ages.  I decided to be a teacher when I was only eight years old.  I love working with young children and instilling in them a life-long passion for learning.

Personal
I was born and raised in Australia. I moved to the United States to marry my amazing husband in 2002.  I enjoy cooking, reading, crocheting, and outdoor photography.  I love arts and crafts and have been known to spend way too much time on Pinterest.  I am the proud mother of a sassy fur child, an Australian Terrier called Cobber.

What Parents Are Saying About Us

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful summer my kids had! Kyra just went to Little Amerricka yesterday and had the best time. She couldn't stop talking about all the fun things she got to do and that was just one day. Griffin is loving it! Memories for a lifetime of all the amazing activities they get to do every day! As a working mom I can't give them what you guys are giving them. Please, pass my thanks to all the camp counselors and admin staff who have made this possible and who keep the place humming along so nicely every single day!
