Front Row (Left to Right)

  • April Kennedy 8 years with CE
    • I enjoy working at CE because what started out as a way to fill some lonely hours became the best part of my day. To see a child so small understand a concept so large is overwhelming. To say you taught  a 4 yr old the basic idea of programming is beyond any idea that I had when I began this job.”
  • Beth Sweargen 6 years with CE
    • “I enjoy teaching with CE because it allows me to continue teaching children after my retirement. Also, I believe strongly in the curriculum and the means by which we incorporate STEM skills. The staff is the best of the best! It isn’t work! It is both fun and rewarding!”
  • Christi McAlpin 2 year with CE
  • Amy Parkes 8 years with CE
  • Libby Barber 6 years with CE
    • “I enjoy teaching with CE because as a former school teacher, it allows me to continue doing what I love-working with children and seeing them learn and apply new skills.”
  • Helen Pinkerton 26 years, Director/Owner
    • After 26 years with CE, I continue to look forward to each workday. Our experienced staff of educators are top notch and completely dedicated to teaching our students. 
    • A parent recently told me that her son is so excited to attend our STREAM classes. He stated that “he lives each day for our classes.” What a incredible tribute to our program and staff.
