Alicia was born in Colorado, and grew up in Texas. She had the opportunity to visit New Orleans quite often and fell in love with the people and culture, and all the city had to offer. Alicia’s husband who is from England loved the European feel of New Orleans so they both decided it was a perfect place to start their lives together.
Teaching has always been an important part of her life and something she has been interested in for as long as she can remember. Growing up, she was the town babysitter, so caring for children was something she picked up early in life, so it was no surprise to anyone when she decided to make a career of it and major in education. Alicia graduated Cum Lade from University of Houston with her B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies, Early Childhood – 6th grade. After graduation she had the opportunity to work at Kipling Street Academy and taught Pre-k 4 for five years. Alicia always wanted to make a difference with children by helping them grow into confident and strong individuals. She decided to open her own childcare preschool so she can make sure every child in every classroom is learning the best way they can.
When Alicia is not in the classroom she enjoys spending time with her husband, reading, making crafts, running and eating all the wonderful foods that New Orleans has to offer.
