Meet the Teachers

Our classes are led by qualified, caring teachers who obtain at least an additional 24 hours of training each year. All staff are trained in CPR and First Aid.

Roberts, Preschool Director

I came to CUMP in January, 2011 and took over the Sunflowers class. I have a teaching certificate in Elementary Education and I taught a PPCD class (Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities) in AISD for 5 years before I had my son and daughter.  After teaching the Sunflowers Class for nearly 8 years, I became the director in 2018.  I am deeply committed to ensuring that each child at CUMP has the opportunity to learn in a safe, stimulating, and play-based environment.

april photo Ms. April, 2 Year Olds, Flamingos Class TeacherI joined the CUMP family as a parent in the Fall of 2015 and became a teacher in the Summer of 2016. My bachelor’s degree is in Family & Human Services. My first job working with children was working as a camp counselor at a summer camp in Oklahoma. Looking back, I have always gravitated toward working with children in a variety of settings throughout my youth and adulthood. Children amaze me in so many ways and I love to interact with them and watch them learn new things through both teaching and self-discovery. I am married and have two beautiful children.
Mr. Jeff, Three Year Olds, Turtles Class Teacher
I have been working with children since 1984 and have been a teacher at CUMP since August, 2001. I graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a B.S. in Therapeutic Recreation/Recreation Administration. I have worked at various agencies in Austin including Austin Parks and Recreation, Travis State School, and two private psychiatric hospitals. I believe children learn best while doing, and I incorporate many hands-on experiences to facilitate my philosophies in the classroom. I am married and have two boys who were in the first and third graduation classes at CUMP.

I joined the CUMP family this fall as the Sunflowers teacher. I’ve been working in early childhood education since graduating from Texas Christian University in 2017. I have a bachelor of science in psychology and a minor in child development. My love for working with young children started when I was a camp counselor during my summers off from TCU. My goal is to provide the best classroom environment for children to think creatively, solve problems independently, and respect themselves and others. Throughout the school year, my students prepare for kindergarten through independent play and fun activities designed to develop their skills. I feel so lucky that I get to help create the magic of childhood everyday at CUMP!
