Gail Skipper, School Director
Gail Skipper, School Director

With a master’s degree in childhood education, Gail Skipper has been in the field as a Director for 30+ years. She came to be a part of the Cadence family in 2013.

She has a passion for early childhood education, walking parents through this stage of their child’s life and enriching teachers with being a part of the “village” needed to lay a foundation for love, care and education of preschoolers. One of her favorite parts of her position is creating experiences and moments for families to have fun together. You will see her enjoying families at a Book Fair Family night, on a Hay Ride for a Fall Festival, and creating a photo booth for ‘A Moment with Mom’ or ‘A Date with Dad.”

Tyann Blue, Assistant Director

I was recently promoted to Assistant Director here at Cadence Academy. Previously I was the lead teacher in our young two’s classroom. I have been in childcare for 4 years and with Cadence for 2. I have an Early Childhood Credential and I'm currently in school, where I'm on pace to have my associate’s degree in early childhood education completed in the summer of 2018.

Catering to the needs of young children and their families has always been my passion. It brings me joy knowing that we are trusted to serve our families. I look forward to what's in store within our preschool here at Cadence Academy, where it is my goal to ensure that you always come first.
