Monica McLamb, School Director
I'm from Willard, NC and I have over 20 years of experience in the childcare field as a Teacher and a Director. I have my associates degree in early childhood education and started with at this school when we opened in November 2005. I have been married for 26 years and have 2 children, Josh and Courtney (who also works with in the Infant classrooms here at Cadence Academy). I just recently became a grandmother to my first grandson, Kagen.
I love working with children and making their environment a fun filled learning experience that keeps them coming back for more. It is my goal for all of our families to feel like they are at home when they leave their children in our hands as they go off to work or school. Cadence Academy has become my second home as I spend my days making sure that our families and staff are well taken care of.
