Birthday: July 11th


My Role at Discovery Zone

I am a K23A Teacher along with Kristi Norwood and have been working at Discovery Zone since June 2018.


My Background & Family

My name is Kayla and I have grown up in McMinnville my whole life. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters and I am the youngest in my family. Even though I am only 17 I have always had a passion for working with and taking care of children, even when I was a child myself. My mom had an in home daycare when I was young so I would always help her with that along with helping in the children's church classes.


Why I Work With Kids

Although I have had many babysitting jobs, this is my first real job. I am enjoying working with the children and getting to know them better. I love working with children because they have an innocence that nobody else has. The joy that a child can bring to everyday life by just being themselves amazes me. It is our job to bring up these children to be the great men and women that this world needs and I am more than happy to be a part of it.


My Favorite Bible Verse
