Meet Our Teachers

Ms. Breanne Messinger, owner, lead teacher, and provider, has received a Master’s Degree in Education and has taught Elementary school for six years. After observing the number of Kindergarten students coming into the public school system unprepared with the basic foundational skills needed to be successful, Ms. Messinger knew that exceptional and academically focused teaching should begin before children enter kindergarten. As the demands for Kindergarten have become more rigorous, class sizes have gotten larger, and all children in Oregon are expected to be enrolled full time in Kindergarten, Ms. Messinger understood there needed to be a connection and bridge between children learning at home, and adjusting to a structured school day.
