Lyndel Doran, Preschool Director: 

I grew up in Dallas and graduated from Ursuline Academy and the University of Dallas. I have not ventured very far from home! My husband Mike and I have lived in this neighborhood for over 27 years. My daughter Ariel and her husband Dallas live in Austin. My son Evan attends the University of Georgia and is in his Junior year. 

Like you, I came to Creative School as a parent.  After my son moved to elementary school, I taught the 3’s for 5 years, which is such a fun age to teach! This is my 10th year as director and I have enjoyed being part of this wonderful community; both Creative School and WHUMC.  

 

I love this quote from Rev. Charles R. Swindoll, “Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.” My focus every day is the connection and interaction with the children, whether it’s a good day, or a bad day. I want them to know they are valued, treasured and important to me.  It is a privilege to play such an important role in their development, growth and education. One thing you may not know about me, as a mother, I worked full-time and had my oldest in day care for six years. On the flip side, I was a stay-at-home mom for 5 years. I do understand the demands and struggles families find themselves in balancing professional and family time.  When families are feeling contrite about forgetting snacks or a lunch or a coat, I sympathize since in the past I have found myself in the same situation.  We are all doing our best!

 

You might ascertain from my profession as an educator, I value education and learning above all else. I joke with friends that I need a placard that states “I work to pay for my children’s education.” While costly financially, our family believes providing a quality education for our children is our highest priority. I know you realize that too! Happy Parenting!
