ELC Staff

Meet the Shepherd’s Flock Early Learning Center Staff

The Shepherd’s Flock ELC teachers hold college degrees, most in Elementary or Early Education. All have taught in the public school system at some point in their teaching careers. Our highly-trained, enthusiastic and committed staff are a tremendous blessing and our greatest asset. They are dedicated to the importance of early education and Christian principles, and go above and beyond because of their passion for teaching young children.
