Elizabeth earned a degree in Human Development and Family Science from the University of Georgia to pursue her passion of working with people. For 6 years she worked directly with adults with developmental disabilities and has a heart for the special needs community. She has also grown up with a desire to teach and has spent the last year as the Lead Teacher for the 2 year old class at Bless You Child Care alongside Abby. She enjoys working with smaller groups of children and being able to see each individual personality in the ways they play and learn. She believes the early years are so important in shaping the future for each child, and she finds joy in helping children learn not only academic and social skills, but also about who they are and how much the Lord loves them. Elizabeth lives in Marietta with her husband, Blake, and their 2 cats.
Abigail has been caring for children for about nine years. She has nannied for several families, worked in the childcare center at the YMCA, babysits for numerous families and is currently at Bless You Child Care as the assistant two-year-old teacher. She takes her role in teaching and caring for children as an honor but also as a high responsibility knowing that the way children are influenced and taught today will help shape their future as adults. Some of her favorite parts of working with children is watching them learn about the world, develop skills and seeing the joy and excitement they display through simple everyday pleasures of life. She is looking forward to helping Elizabeth teach in the fall and is also excited about teaching, playing and developing relationships with the children. During her spare time, she enjoys serving at her church, running, baking and spending time with her family and friends. She currently lives in the Grant Park neighborhood and has enjoyed living there for the past five years!
