My name is Julie and Mom’s Day Out is one of the greatest things I’ve ever been a part of. I joined with my son, Lucas, in 2008 when he was 18 months old. The program was perfect because it gave me the break that I so desperately needed while providing an outlet for him to play and grow. I was all in. I started donating supplies and singing their praises to everyone who would listen. Soon I was asked to join the team. I became a Daily Director in 2010 and eventually even served as President of the Board. Through the years I have met some of the most amazing families and I have been so grateful to work with a fantastic team of teachers.

My family first joined Mom’s Day Out in 2017 with my oldest son and we made lifelong friends. My youngest son now attends MDO and I enjoy watching him develop his own personality among his peers. I am very excited to teach at MDO! I enjoyed my time substituting in the classroom last year. Ages 2-3 are my very favorite to interact with. They go through so much growth and development that is fun to watch them. For fun I like to go hiking with my family, crafting, budgeting, and cooking new recipes. I can’t wait to get to know your kiddos!

My name is Rosa and this is my first year teaching at Mom’s Day Out. I have a daughter in the nursery who I can’t wait to socialize. Prior to becoming a mother, I was a nanny to infants and toddlers. I was also a paraeducator at a nonprofit for several years. I have always enjoyed working with children and am thrilled to do so again. I was born and raised in northern California. I love to go back to visit family whenever I can. During my free time, I like to relax at home with my husband and daughter and spend quality time with friends and family. I’m very excited for my first year at MDO.

I first brought my children to Mom’s Day Out in 2014 and have had 1 or more children in the program ever since. They have learned, played, and made lots of friends. This year my youngest daughter will be in the nursery.  I was a member of the Board during the 2017-18 school year and then began teaching at MDO in 2018.  I grew up in Western Washington but I attended college in Utah. I worked teaching school in Guatemala and after getting married moved back to Washington and worked for the Kent School District for 3 years before my children were born. I have a dog named Maylie, a bunny named Misty and three pet ducks. When I’m not at MDO I like to hike, ride my bike, surf, play the guitar, explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest and most of all spend time with my husband and 5 kids!

My name is Naema Said and I joined the MDO Family in 2022 when I enrolled my son in Level 2.  It was the best decision for my family. My son came home happy as he played, learned and socialized with his peers and was eager to return. I also had a break while tending to my newborn; who is now joining the MDO Family with me in the Nursery.  I am looking forward to a great school year, both as a parent and a Nursery teacher.
