Margaret Schumacher, School Director
My name is Margaret, but please call me Mugsy! I have worked in early childhood education for over 32 years and I have both an AA in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelors of Arts degree.
I have been married to my husband, Pat, for nearly 30 years and even though I am the actual mother to four grown children, I see myself as everyone’s mother. I work to be a champion for all children and all families. I consider it an honor to provide our children a strong educational foundation and I work relentlessly to improve our school. I continue to take courses and read often to make certain that I'm doing everything I can to provide great care for our kids and the Sleater-Kinney Cadence Academy community.
Aarika Loverly, Teacher
Hello, my name is Aarika. I have been working in childcare for three years and currently I am the lead preschool teacher here at Cadence Academy. I am working on completing my CDA and am also involved in the leadership training program offered through Cadence Academy. I love being a teacher and getting to spend all day with the kids helping them to grow. One of my main focus’s with parents is communication both written and verbal. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, Kaleb, and my six month old son, Jace.
