Stacy lives with her husband of 25 years and three children here in Orange County.

I have been working at Shining Stars for the past 6 years and I love it!  I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Communications (focusing on event planning) from Cal State Fullerton.  I love creating, decorating and organizing events.  My favorite part of the day is when I am greeted by the children as I go from class to class- the kids say hi and give great hugs.  I really do believe in the children and want them all to be successful and do really well in school.  I have two children of my own that both attended school here.  I firmly believe God has paced me here and that even though my little ones are older, my role here is to continue to help making this school great and to glorify God with it.

I love working full time here at Shining Stars welcoming in the children and their families every morning!

I’m a Montanta girl at heart, but I love being here in California.  I look may look young, but I graduated from college more than a couple years ago.  I have 3 beautiful children that  am very proud of.  Being the front office administrator allows me the opportunity to get to know everyone and see their smiling faces daily!

Yami Moran

I grew up in Orange County I love working here at Shining Stars full time as the lead teacher for the toddlers. I’ve taken childhood development classes at both OCC and Saddleback college. I’ve enjoyed the conferences I’ve been able to attend for additional training as well.

I have so many parts of my day that I appreciate is Circle Time as well as when the children get to go outside and play. They have so much energy and enthusiasm when they get free play time. I am bilingual and my husband and I have a teenage son; they really grow up fast! I enjoy music and going to concerts in my classroom will frequently have music in the background.  One thing I really look forward to is taking road trips — anywhere!

I want the children I teach to know how loved they truly are.  I am the one posting photos of what we are up to on Facebook… it is so fun!

Clementina Mier

Hola! My name is Clementina Mier and I grew up in the prettiest town in México where I attended school for Buisness Administration.  Once I came to CA I took many units in childhood development.  I have 5 beautiful kids; and have served on the PTA for many years.  I have been working with children for over 20 years and am so grateful to be able to be doing so.  I love movies, hanging out with my adult kids, gardening and I collect tea pots 🙂

I’ve had so much fun being a preschool teacher at Shining Stars Christian Preschool teaching full time  since 2011 and love being a part of this family. I currently work with the 2-year-olds and have so much fun! My favorite thing to do with the kids is art because I don’t know what the outcome will be and I get to see the creativity of the children. It’s amazing to see the talent of each child. I also love to teach because of the purity of their hearts and their ability to love, give and learn.

Connie Goltz

I love the mornings when I am able to greet my class and start each new day!  I feel very special knowing I can be a part of their lives at such a young and precious age.  I am so blessed to be able to work with and teach children.  I have my BA in Liberal Studies from CSLA and my masters from USC in Education, I also have my  multiple subject teaching credential here in California.

I currently teach the 2 1/2- 3 year olds.  I love to see them growing and flourishing.  When I ‘m not with the children, I enjoy cooking for my family and friends.

Nicole Rash

I have been working with children for over 20 years and love them. I have 3 children of my own and one grandson (who actually attends here at Shining Stars). I’ve taken some classes in childhood development and it has helped me to appreciate the excitement the children show when they learn something new or master a new task. The children grow so much in what they learn when they are here. I do enjoy nap time! They are so adorable on their own little beds and they are so peaceful while they rest. I really love teaching the 3 year old class.

I graduated from Manillo Beauty College and have many different interests!  I love to sew, crochet, sing, watch movies and attending musicals.

Teri Tredway

I am a 45 year old mother of a fifth grade son and a 13 year old daughter. My husband teachers High School at a local public school. At Shining Stars, I am the lead teacher for the transitional Kindergarten class. I have my Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Cal State Fullerton and an elementary teaching credential from Cal State Long Beach. I have been teaching on varying levels of preschool for 21 years and really enjoy young children.  I love watching the children grow and continue to engage in new things.  I want them always to believe in themselves- to know they are big enough, strong enough and smart enough!  One of my favorite activities is hiking, I love being outside in nature.
