Lead Classroom Teachers

Jennifer "Jen" Carver

Infant Teacher

I would like to introduce myself; my name is Jen Carver and I am the Infant Room Lead Teacher. I have worked in the field of Early Childhood for the past sixteen years and still love it to this day. I have spent my time in child care working with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. I was employed at an Early Head Start and Head Start Agency before joining the Room to Bloom team three years ago. One of the greatest decisions in my life I have made thus far.

Working with infants is an age group that I thoroughly enjoy. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child and I do understand that leaving your precious baby with new people is never easy. I love working with families to be a support team in building a foundation for your child’s development and look forward to being a part of it.

I have always enjoyed working with children, as it is a part of who I am. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, sports, and various outdoor activities. I continue to take trainings to further my education to help make a program that best fits your child’s individual needs. Feel free to come to me with any questions or comments, as I encourage feedback. Communication plays an important role as we work together to bring the best education we can to your infant. Welcome to the Infant Room, Little Bloomers. We are glad you are now a part of our classroom.

Elizabeth "Lizzy" Schneider

Toddler Teacher

Hello, my name is Elizabeth Schneider, but everybody calls me Lizzy. I am the lead teacher in the Busy Bees (waddler room). I have been working at Room to Bloom for over a year now. I graduated High School in 2013 and I’m currently focusing on furthering my education. I have my certificate in Early Childhood Education. I’m very excited to meet you and your little’s!

More About Me...I have worked with little ones since I was 12. I babysat all the way up until high school when I use to work in my high school’s child center at CATC. I am very hardworking, loving, caring, outgoing, fun, and goofy! I am always trying to make people laugh and I just all around love having a good time. I have a son who means the entire world to me and he is the main reason I love working with your little’s! I cannot wait to meet and get to know you and your kiddos, and vise-versa! If you have any question about me, or if you have anything you’d like to share please don’t hesitate to ask.

A few of my favorite things: pepperoni pizza, coffee ice cream, the color purple, the restaurant Margaritas, softball, and Reese's candy.

Haley EdwardsPizza

Toddler Teacher

Hello my name is Haley Edwards! I am lead teacher here in the Little Sprouts classroom. I went to Cony High School and took a year of early childhood. I graduated in 2015 and I am currently continuing my education in early childhood. I am very excited to teach your little ones and watch them grow!

I have worked in a childcare setting since high school. Previous to this, I have worked in two different day cares, plus I helped my aunt out with her son. I am very funny, hardworking, loving, responsible and can sometimes be quiet. Back in 2016 I had a child of my own. She is the main reason I strive to do my best at everything in life. Thank you for allowing me to take care of your little ones. I’m looking forward to get to know and love all of your littles! If you have any questions about me or for me please feel free to ask.

Things I love: family, friends, country music, warm weather, food, and traveling.
