Hello! My name is Ms. Lisa and I have the privilege of being a part of University Academy since 2017 as the director and principal. I feel blessed to work with dedicated and wonderful teachers. I started my childcare career at the age of 19. I found myself nurturing, caring, guiding, teaching, and loving children. I have since obtained my associate and bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and my master’s in Leadership. I am also a Broward School Certified teacher who has taught Pre-K through 8th grade. I have an amazing spouse with two beautiful and smart girls who are my pride and joy. I am proud to be the director and principal of this facility.

Ms. Nehemy

Hi! My name is Ms. Nehemy, I am married with two children. My career working with children starting back in Haiti when I worked at an orphanage facility, which leads me to have a nurturing heart for children. I love working with children because I enjoy expanding their minds and imagination. Two of my favorite parts of working with children is teaching them manners and making sure they get all the nutrition they need to grow strong to learn.

Ms. Shaun

Her love for education and children is displayed through her daily routines with the children. Ms. Shaun takes her time with each student dedicating every second of her time to making sure every student is where he/she is to be.

Hello! My name is Ms. Shaun and I am a family member here at University Academy. With over 8 years of experience in childcare, I am currently working on my CDA. I grew up in a large family, which was my inspiration to get into this career of teaching and caring for children.

Ms. Felecia

Ms. Felicia has a clear vision for the students she teaches on a daily basis to make them the very best they can be! Her favorite line comes from Dr. Seuss, "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that who is more You'er than you!

My name is Ms. Felica, I am the VPK/kindergarten teacher here at University Academy. I’ve obtained my CDA (Child Development Associate) and currently in school to obtain my Director Credential. I have been teaching and caring for children for over 10 years. As a mother of two and grandmother of four, I took on this challenge of teaching because watching how children grasp information so quickly when I am teaching them is a constant reminder for me the reason why I’ve always wanted to become a teacher.

Ms. Marie

As a hard-working mother of two Ms. Marie is our Assistant director here at University Academy.

Bonjour! My name is Ms. Marie and I love working with children! After caring for my sisters at a young age and becoming a mother of two, I’ve decided to pursue a career in the education field. I’ve obtained my CDA to be able to help kids expand their imagination and explore through activities. I’ve been in this field for eight years and I would never trade my career for anything in the world because working with children is my passion!
