    Teacher - 3-Day Three Year Old Class

    My name is Elona Pendell and I am pleased to be able to help out at Little Footprints Learning Center by being one of the 3 year old teachers.

    I have experience teaching in public schools as well as directing and teaching in preschools.

    During this time of the pandemic I’m happy to help families and enjoy the children. Along with the academic part of our program I will be teaching the children that God made them special and loves them. When they look in the mirror I want them to remember they will see someone special…made and loved by God.
