Meet the teachers

Ms. Karolynn, CDA

4-5-year-old teacher
I am Ms. Karolynn, owner and 4-5-year-old teacher at It’s A Good Day Preschool!  I enjoy basketball, singing, piano, flute, camping, watching movies, Coke Zero, Chocolate, and, most importantly, being with my wonderful husband, darling 5 kids (ages 29, 27, 16, 17, and 13), son-in-law, my adorable grandson (age 4) and my beautiful granddaughter (age 10 months).  My love for children started as a child myself.  Growing up, my Mother had a daycare in her home, and I couldn’t wait to come home from school to play with the little kids.  This is still true today.  I have always believed that children are the most important people in the world, and they should never be ignored.  That is why you will always see me at the kids' table at parties.  Raising a child with special needs has given me a lot of experience in how to love and be patient.  I take several classes a year on how to teach children and reinforce positive behavior.
I have spent many years in the classroom with my children and in therapy sessions, from teaching how to hold a pencil to encouraging children to eat new things.  One of my favorite activities is to get down on the floor and play with them during free time.  I just love kids and the cute things they say.  I look forward to loving your children and watching them grow and learn.  Ms. Karolynn is going on her 8th year teaching in the preschool setting, is current on CPR/First Aid, food handlers permit, Tooele County preschool permit, Tooele county business license, holds a state of Utah child care license, and passed a current background check. Ms. Karolynn currently has a Child  Development Associate (CDA)  The CDA  is the most widely recognized credential in early childhood education.  She is also certified in the following: Indoor and outdoor safety, dual language learning, promoting empathy and other prosocial behaviors, gender bias, and stereotypes, bullying in the preschool environment, creating a multicultural environment, inclusion, and children with special needs, parent communication, nutrition and fitness, learning centers, curriculum, developmental domains, recognizing infectious disease, signs of child abuse and the impact it has on children, how children learn, positive guidance, oral health and assessing young children.  She is currently enrolled in the Childcare Education Institute, attends the yearly Utah Early Childhood Conference, furthering her early child development education. 

Mrs. Melissa
3-4-year-old teacher
4-5-Year-Old 2-day class
Hello, my name is Mrs. Melissa, and I am thrilled to be teaching at It's A Good Day Preschool. Now that my kids are a little older, I am so excited to start with Miss Karolynn and have a chance to teach preschool again. My husband and I have 4 kids, ages 6,7,11 and 13. Raising them and learning how to best be a good mom for their individual needs and personalities has been my pride and joy for the last 13 years. I love music (especially singing) camping with my family, playing board games, and doing triathlons. I especially enjoy working with preschool-aged kids. I love that they are so eager to learn and try new things. They are quick to love and forgive and share their joy with everyone around them. It's so rewarding to help them figure out the things they are struggling with and seeing their excitement over the things they accomplish. I am grateful for the chance to be part of the fun as we learn and discover together.  Mrs. Melissa is in her 4th year teaching at It's A Good Day Preschool and is CPR/First Aid certified and attends the yearly Utah Early Childhood Conference, furthering her early child development education.
