Meet Our Team

Christie Stemplinski

Christie has been working with children since 2002, having earned her Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education from Hiram College (Theater Minor)!


She is passionate about the growth and development of children and loves seeing their “a-ha moments!” Every day is different and exciting, and Christie finds joy in being able to still work with children but also support adults that are in the field!


She lives in Tremont, Ohio with her dog, Capone. Living close by are her parents in Parma Heights and one brother with his family in Berea. Her other brother lives in Los Angeles.




Christie’s two favorite childhood books are:




Charlotte’s Web: It was her first ever chapter book to read completely on her own and she read this book to all her school-age classes as a teacher.


Oh, the Places You’ll Go!: she always loved hearing the story and she also loves to gift it!


“If you hear about being a dreamer, a discoverer, an explorer… you become inspired to become a dreamer, a discoverer, and explorer!”
