Roberta-Picture-180x180-150x150I am honored to be a part of the Cadence Education family. Their commitment to offering the highest level of service to our families empowers me to perform at my best so I can deliver excellent service and educational experiences to the children in my care. Cadence’s dedication to providing comprehensive training and annual re-certifications to their teachers allows me to overcome any roadblocks I encounter in my classroom with ease. The team atmosphere and open-door approach our Directors embrace helps me maintain a work/life balance, provides me with career growth recognition and career satisfaction. All of these values keep me going after 18 years with the Apple Tree Children’s Center and they guide our entire Cadence Education family of schools. This, coupled with Cadence’s success and advancement opportunities, makes this the perfect place to work.

ms_lauren-180x180-150x150Working here has given me a chance to grow and blossom, not only as a teacher but also as a mother, a team member and as a person. The highly qualified staff makes me feel right at home and the management team has always been supportive and had encouraged me to further pursue my education; from day one I felt like part of the team.

At this school, I have especially enjoyed the camaraderie, there is always somebody that lightens up my load, even if it is just with a word or with a gesture, everyone is always willing to lend a hand or give a word of encouragement; and it has really made me appreciate this school and this company.
