Featured Teacher: Ms. Ami

At Children’s Discovery Center, we are blessed to have a team of exceptional early childhood educators dedicated to nurturing and inspiring young minds. Among these remarkable individuals is Ms. Ami Holzscheiter, our beloved pre-K A head teacher. Ms. Ami’s compassion and commitment have guided generations of young students at the start of their lifelong learning journey.

A Legacy of Learning and Growth

Ms. Ami is a cornerstone of CDC, having joined our family more than 25 years ago. She brings her passion for early education and discovery to every lesson. 

And her efforts have not gone unnoticed! In addition to the reward of watching her students grow, Ms. Ami received the Director’s Certificate in recognition of her exceptional endeavors. 

However, what this educator loves most about working at Children’s Discovery Center is the daily interactions with her children. Each day presents new discoveries, and witnessing those sparks of curiosity first-hand makes her work fulfilling.

When asked about her favorite projects, Ms. Ami shared she “always enjoys bird projects!” She has helped students explore many subjects over the years, with each guided by her “F.A.I.L.” philosophy. 

With this point of view, students are taught to view failure as an initial step in the learning process –  F.A.I.L. (first attempt in learning) – and are encouraged to do their best without fear of making mistakes. As a true role model, she also practices this in her personal life.

Her Personal Life

When not guiding her young discoverers, Ms. Ami loves spending time with her family and embracing the beauty of the outdoors. Whether it’s a hiking adventure, a day at the park, or simply enjoying nature, she finds joy in these moments, recharging her batteries for the next classroom adventure.
