Meet our team


Director Ms. Stephanie 

Hi, I’m Stephanie and I’ve always had a passion for teaching and learning! I originally graduated from WSU with a degree in elementary and special education in 2017. I also graduated from EWU with a master’s degree in educational leadership in 2021. I have taught elementary school (in special education grades k-5, as well as being a 4th grade teacher) for 6 years. I recently had a baby girl in January, and because of her I have decided to take some time off from teaching full time elementary school. I am excited to still be able to help create a space for kids to learn and grow everyday now at the preschool level! I taught preschool while I was in college for 3 years and loved every second of it. Kiddos are at such a fun age as they are absorbing everything around them, so I am excited to be back helping out at the preschool level this year!

We are so excited to have Miss Stephanie on our preschool team. If you have any questions about enrollment for fall of 2023 please feel free to email or DM us or email us at



Hello! My name is Tara, and I am excited to join the preschool team at Sanctuary. I love to learn and I am eager to share my love of learning with young minds. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Idaho. Pullman has been my cherished home for over two decades. I love our community! Raising five children of my own has granted me invaluable insights into child development. I believe in empowering children through encouragement, love and gentle guidance. Spending time in the classroom, as a volunteer and substitute, has given me tools to guide children on the journey of growth and discovery. My favorite thing is spending time with my family--my husband, Eric, and our children, including a new daughter-in-law :) I enjoy baking, hiking, reading and finding the good in everyone and everything.



Hello! I’m Hannah and I am so excited to join the team at Sanctuary Preschool. I have lived in Pullman my whole life and decided to stay to attend WSU. I am currently a junior working towards my elementary education degree with an endorsement in mathematics. My dream job in preschool was to become a teacher and I am so proud of myself for continuing to achieve my goals. Joining the Sanctuary team I am excited to teach your children the importance of growth and encourage them to be ambitious. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and friends, go skiing, and watch a movie with some popcorn. I am so excited to work with your children and get to know them!
