"I was an educator in OCPS for 6 years before taking a leave of absence to stay home with my twins. They began attending Zion when they were two years old. Once I had my third child and the twins in Kindergarten, I wanted to teach again and came to Zion with my youngest. It's been a blessing to work here!"

Angie Harlin

"I have my degree in elementary education with a minor in early childhood development.  I've worked in the preschool setting for 20 years.  VPK is my favorite because the children are so curious and excited to learn new things.  I am married with three kids (ages 19, 17, 5) and two rescue boxers.  I’m excited to be part of an amazing preschool!"
