Lisa Newman’s life has been dedicated to the love, nurturing, and development of children. Growing up in a broken home gave her a strong desire to help children from all walks of life. She believes children are life’s greatest blessing to those who choose to parent!
Ms. Lisa started teaching Sunday School at age 19. Since then, she has spent 6 years as a home-licensed childcare provider, has fostered 13 children over the years, and has been blessed to parent 6 children: one biological child (Kayli), two step-children (Stephan and Emma), and three adopted children (Shaina, and Jaiden and Deven).
She believes it is the grace of God that has brought her family this far and she knows that he will continue to walk with them. She is committed to this life of helping children.
Ms. Sarah comes from a family of teachers which gave her the opportunity to volunteer during her early years in high school/college and sparked her passion for early education. Over the next few years she realized there was a huge need for quality care and teachers. In 2006, she had the opportunity to leave South Dakota and move to Colorado with family and make it home. She was drawn to colorful Colorado and the new adventures it would bring to further her education, career and allow her to enjoy the outdoors, hiking, and colds nights.
She has been a part of the Little Sprouts family since early 2014. She enjoys the incredible staff, working to provide quality education, bringing nature back into the classrooms and making a difference in the lives of our families. Ms. Sarah’s favorite colors are purple and orange, she enjoys spicy Mexican food, and spending time with her husband Camron and puppy Pepper.
I first became passionate about teaching when I would babysit in high school. I started in daycare to continue my interest in caring for children. I instantly found a great love for this job and always like seeing the light bulb moments in students. Early childhood education gives me great purpose in life as I am continuously learning and growing with my students. Over my seven years in childcare, I’ve been able to expand my understanding of early childhood education and education overall. I remain constantly learning and growing in this field and am excited to be a part of the Little Sprouts Team.
When I’m not learning with my students, I find myself at home with a classic rom com, my cat, and a cup of coffee.
