One of the best parts about working and investing in the education sector is having the privilege to meet and connect with educators who dedicate their lives to developing future generations. A few months ago, we had the opportunity to meet one of those inspiring educators, Sherie Cigar-James. Sherie received her Master’s Degree in Education Leadership and Instructional Studies in 2010. She had experience as a student teacher, substitute teacher, coach, and volunteer at various schools in the LA area. As the mother of five and inspired by her two-year-old son, Sherie decided to open a preschool out of her home in Inglewood, California. As a first-time business owner, there were many factors to consider. What should she charge? How would she get the word out? How could she ensure that she could serve all families in her neighborhood who wanted to attend her preschool, including those who had access to childcare subsidies? And how could she deliver the best possible education and development to the children in her care? To answer all of these questions and more, Sherie turned to Wonderschool.
