Hello All! My name is Caety Hunt! I will be working with the Bulldog Beginnings Preschool Program as the Program Director and Lead Teacher. I have been working in the education field since 2005 in multiple settings. Preschool, dance, assisting K-5, and then back to my first love, PRESCHOOL. I am so thankful to be given the opportunity to work with families and their preschoolers. I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelors in Child Development, with an emphasis on early childhood education. I have continued learning about the development of our youngest learners and am very excited to meet you all and get this school year underway.
Hello, my name is Kayla Downs. I am a mother of 3 beautiful children and a wife to an amazing, hard-working man. I am a genuine, easy-going person. Beyond my family and pets, I enjoy a good laugh mixed with a little adventure. Camping, cruises, and, of course, the yearly trip to the UP are some of my favorite getaways. My best friend and confidant on most days is my mother.
Hello, my name is Tara Allen. I have worked at Ionia Public Schools for 4 years at Jefferson Elementary as Title 1 paraprofessional. I was a JRI teacher for all grades and a grade paraprofessional for 5th and KinderStart.
