Meet one of the most dedicated teams in early education in the Piedmont. Our teachers are leaders, friends, mentors, and role models. They are the ones we trust to introduce our little ones to the world.
Katie became Co-Op’s Director in 2013, after working as the Lead Toddler Teacher for two and a half years. She earned her BA in English (with a minor in Studio Art) from UNCG in 2004, her Early Childhood Credential in 2011, and her Early Childhood Administration Credential in 2014.
She enjoys talking with children about their ideas and loves watching the learning process unfold, especially if it involves art. Event-planning and creative problem-solving are Katie’s favorite parts of her job. She also helps create a strong community of families and teachers at Co-Op and enjoys seeing everyone support one another.
When she is not at Co-Op, Katie enjoys trying different kinds of arts and crafts, which include recent projects in painting, collage, cross stitching, pyrography and fairy gardens. She also likes building obstacle courses for her pet gerbils, playing board games with friends, and going to coffee shops. Katie is happiest when she is in or near any body of water, and loves spending time with her husband Justin.
Daniel Moore is the Lead Teacher of the Preschool classroom. He earned his Early Childhood Credential from Guilford Technical Community College in 2014. He has worked at CHCC since 2012. Before coming to CHCC, Daniel served in the U.S. Army for 4 years, working as a Medic and a Chaplain’s Assistant. Daniel has also spent time volunteering as an adult leader in a local troop of the Boy Scouts of America.
Some of Daniel’s favorite classroom activities include story time, construction play, and outside games. He finds great joy in helping the children gain independence and prepare for kindergarten. Facilitating independence is one of Daniel's key goals, as he encourages the children in his class to do many tasks on their own and to help each other.
Mr. Daniel has a 12 year old son and together they enjoy watching movies and playing laser tag. Our preschool teacher is also a “retired” player of the coop kickball team and is currently their #1 fan; he can be found cheering for the team every Tuesday from the stands.
