Heather Lewis, School Director
Hello families! My name is Heather and it is a joy to be a part of the Cadence Education family. I have worked within the childcare field since 2000 and have my Child Development Associates Certificate. I am also going back to school to complete my AA in Early Childhood Education.
During my free time, I like to spend time with my family. We enjoy road trips and exploring as a family. I have 2 sons of my own. My first born Jayden was born in 2003, loves football, and was even accepted to join a traveling team with Reggie Jones from the New Orleans Saints. My other son Kouri was born in 2005 and also loves football. He has an agent and has been in a couple commercials. One with Seattle Children’s Hospital and he just did another with Richard Sherman. I also have a little stepson Malaki who was born in 2014. My boys keep me very busy as they are growing up into little men.
Thank you for entrusting us with your children here at Cadence Academy DuPont, where we truly strive to implement exceptional education!
Sydni Hause, Assistant Director
Hello! My name is Sydni Hause and I am so excited to be a part of the Cadence Education team!
I have a lot of management experience through food, retail, and education. I have decided to dedicate my career to Early Childhood Education. I am currently certified in Para education, I am working very diligently on my stackable certificates to go along with my AA in Early Childhood Education.
I currently have one daughter, Magnolia. Born Christmas Eve of 2015. She loves all things fairy tale, and princess but is never afraid to go make a mud pie. During our time away from school, we love to spend as much time outside as possible, science experiments are one of our favorite things to do as a family. When we go on vacation, you will always find us at the beach!
I am so very excited to be a part of this team and be a vital part of these children’s lives. I couldn’t be more grateful!
