Get to know the Teachers!

School is back in session.   Let's get to know the teachers at Doreen Cato Early Learning for the 2017 - 18 school year!

Verna Grissette - Lead Teacher, Classroom 1

Mrs. Verna has been at First Place for three years. She has been in the Early Learning field for over 30 years. She works in Early Learning because she loves children sees this work as her calling. She enjoys seeing the children learn and develop. Her desire to see them thrive and the joy she finds in meeting new and different kinds of people is the driving force behind all of her hard work. Thank you Mrs. Verna!!

Stacy Brown - Lead Teacher, Classroom 2

Mrs. Stacy has worked with children for most of her life. She is a fun loving, compassionate teacher who enjoys what she does. She learns through teaching and feels it allows her to be herself. She has over 20 years experience working with children of all ages. Welcome Mrs. Stacy, we’re happy to have you!


Daysha Knight - Assistant Teacher

Miss Daysha began her career as a preschool teacher right out of high school. She doesn’t see this job as work. The education of young people comes naturally for Daysha, and she uses it to inspire her to cultivate critical thinking. Daysha is currently in college pursuing a Bachelors of Early Learning and Education with hopes of working in under-served preschools overseas. Daysha, you are an asset to Doreen Cato!
