Employee
of the
Month


Vanessa Marshall has been with Lil' Sprouts Academy for almost 3.5 years. During this time she has taken on various responsibilities: teaching in the preschool and pre-k classrooms, helping develop and organize curriculum, mentoring teachers and most currently being a PIC (person in charge). She is always going above and beyond, setting the bar high above what is expected. 

The love she has for our kiddos and our cause shows immensely in the work that she does, and we are so fortunate to have her!
