About the Director

HI! MY NAME IS STACY SALANGSANG-SEGOVIA, AND I AM THE CENTER DIRECTOR AT CHILDREN'S LIGHTHOUSE. ALTHOUGH I WAS BORN IN HAWAII, I RESIDE HERE IN HELOTES WITH MY HUSBAND ROBERT AND OUR THREE DOGS. I ALSO HAVE A DAUGHTER, GABI. I BEGAN MY CAREER WITH CHILDREN'S LIGHTHOUSE IN 2009, AS AN ASSISTANT TEACHER IN ROOM THREE (ONE YEAR-OLDS!). AFTER ONE YEAR AS AN ASSISTANT, I WAS PROMOTED TO THE LEAD TEACHER POSITION IN ROOM THREE, WHERE I SIMULTANEOUSLY WORKED AS THE INFANT AND TODDLER CURRICULUM COORDINATOR. MY TIME IN ROOM THREE TAUGHT ME THAT CHILDREN ARE NEVER TOO YOUNG TO BEGIN LEARNING, AND I WAS ASTOUNDED BY ALL OF THE INFORMATION AND SKILLS THAT MY STUDENTS WERE ABLE TO ABSORB. I LEARNED THAT BY PROVIDING A CHALLENGING, YET CONSISTENT CURRICULUM, MY STUDENTS WERE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THINGS FAR BEYOND. MERE MILESTONES. FOLLOWING MY TENURE IN ROOM THREE, I WAS OFFERED THE POSITION OF ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT, WHICH I HELD FOR TWO YEARS. IN FEBRUARY 2014, I WAS PRESENTED THE IMMENSE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK AS OUR CENTER'S DIRECTOR. I AM LICENSED AS A CHILDCARE DIRECTOR THROUGH THE TEXAS STATE DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY PROTECTIVE SERVICES. I ENJOY WATCHING OUR SCHOOL'S CHILDREN LEARN AND GROW, AND AM CONSTANTLY ASTONISHED BY THE UNPRECEDENTED THINGS OUR STUDENTS SAY AND DO FROM DAY TO DAY! THERE IS TRULY NEVER A DULL MOMENT IN CHILDCARE. I AM INCREDIBLY PROUD OF OUR CENTER AND I ENDEAVOR TO ENSURE THAT EACH CHILD IN OUR CARE IS BEING NURTURED, LOVED, AND ENCOURAGED TO ACHIEVE BEYOND THEIR POTENTIAL. WHEN I AM NOT STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE HERE AT CHILDREN'S LIGHTHOUSE, I ENJOY SCRAPBOOKING, EXPLORING SAN ANTONIO AND SURROUNDING CITIES, AND SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY. I LOVE GETTING TO KNOW NEW PEOPLE, AND AM INTERESTED IN GETTING EVEN MORE ACQUAINTED WITH EVERY FAMILY AT OUR SCHOOL; PLEASE FEEL FREE TO STOP BY AND SAY "HI" ANYTIME!
