Meet Our Director

Hello, my name is Karin. I hold an A.S. Degree in Early Childhood Education and Advanced Level Director's Credential with VPK endorsement. I have thirty years of experience in early childhood education, ten of which have been in management and the other twenty as a teacher in all age groups. It is important to me to create a warm, welcoming and fun environment and to maintain an open door policy to our parents. I believe that when children receive a strong foundation...quality education coupled with a loving environment, children stand an excellent chance of reaching their full potential. I could not be more happy to be leading our amazing team at Ladybird Academy of Independence as Center Director and cannot wait to meet you and your child personally.

""A teacher plants the seeds of knowledge, sprinkles them with love and patiently nurtures their growth to produce tomorrow's dreams.""

What Our Parents Are Saying

The front management was so friendly and welcoming to our family.

On our tour of this amazing facility the staff were happy and engaging with their children. As the director Ms. Karin continued on with the tour, it blew our minds that this school has an art studio, playtown, computer lab, library and a STEM lab to boot. The playgrounds are absolutely amazing with a giant ladybug splash pad for the children to use on our hot Texas days. My children are so happy that we chose Ladybird Academy for their preschool.
