Lead Infant Teacher


I am KaShira Watts from Temple, Texas. I am married with three amazing children. We are a fun, outgoing, sporty, outdoor, close knit family. I have been taking care of children since I was ten years old and I love kids and they love me. I will always treat your child as if he/she is my own. My background is more than five years with early childhood education. I believe that early childhood education is the core to where you start a good foundation on who each child will grow up to be and how they act in our society. In my class I love to teach children right from wrong, ABC’s, colors, words, manners, respect, and handwashing.
