6 Weeks – 8 Months

Ms. Stephanie
Lead Teacher
I am Stephanie Spotts and I am 26 years old, born and raised in a small town in Michigan. I moved to Bloomington in 2020 when I married my husband Nate. We have two little boys together, Maverick (2), and Ezekiel (1). I have an AA from Heartland Community College, and I’m working towards my AAS in Early Childhood Education. I have volunteered with children through my old and new church since I was about 13, and I’ve always had a passion for working with young children, and I am super excited to begin my journey at Little Jewels.

Ms. Brenda
Assistant Teacher
I live in Downs and love to spend time with my family and my two rescue pups. I have over 26 years of experience working with children, and I feel there is no better feeling then a huge hug from a child.  In my spare time, I am a photographer and I love to do crafts. I am a huge animal lover, but dogs take up the most room in my heart. I am super excited to be here and get to know the entire Little Jewels family.

Ms. Kendra
Assistant Teacher
Hi! My name is Kendra! I am a mother to 4 beautiful children. I have 3 boys and 1 girl. I spend majority of my time with them! We love to be outside and in nature. If we can't do that, it doesn't stop us from still having fun! We like to play board games, build puzzles, and one of my favorite things is when they use their big imaginations to play pretend or make their own games! If I do have some time to myself in the evenings then I love to relax and watch one of my favorite shows or movies while also having my favorite snack.

Ms. Kylie
Assistant Teacher
I am currently a junior at Illinois State University studying communication sciences and disorders with a minor in psychology as well as children’s studies! I have been working at Little Jewels since fall of 2021, and absolutely adore working with the little ones! In my free time I like to spend time with friends, go to the gym, read, and get coffee.
