Deb Hartough, Center Director
Deb Hartough, Center Director

As Director, I look forward to working closely with parents to make our school an educational, loving environment for children to learn and grow. I previously worked for Cadence Academy from 2004 to 2013 starting as a Cook, then moved into teaching as a 2 Year Old Teacher, and was later promoted to Director. I am delighted to be back!

I was born and raised on Long Island New York and moved to Washington State in 1994. I am the proud mother of three young men ranging from 19 to 28.

Celia Graham, Teacher

Hello, my name is Celia Graham and I have been a part of Cadence Academy for 12 years. My husband and I live in Olympia, Washington and I have 1 son. I have completed my 20 hour STARS training, and I have been working on getting my CDA. I enjoy working in my yard and my garden, doing puzzles, and taking walks. I have worked with all ages of children and enjoy seeing them develop and grow. I want to be a teacher the children can look up to and learn from. Thank you for letting me be a part of your child’s learning.

Hello, my name is Susan Pope. I have very much enjoyed taking care of the infants here at Cadence Academy for almost 13 years. Each year I have attended STARS certification trainings and continue to further my education in early childhood. My husband and I were married for 42 years and we have 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters. I am happily involved in my church and I love baking when I get the chance. Thank you for giving me the privilege of taking care of your child.
