Our Little People


Teacher Monica


Hi! I'm Teacher Monica.


 I’ve been working in education and with young children for over 10 years!  I am SO excited to be back in the classroom after having two of my own little ones.


 I’m a Southern California native but fell in love with the PNW while on my honeymoon way back in 2013 and have been trying to find a way back ever since. 


In my spare time, I love being outdoors with my family, crafting, and reading up on how best to continue advocating and supporting our littlest humans and their families.

Teacher Nessa




Teacher Sam here! 

I have worked with infants and toddlers for about 8 years now!


It is my true passion in life to be a positive light in every child’s life. Growing up it was my mom and I, and she owned a daycare in our house. I would get home from school and help her out with the kids because I genuinely loved doing it. That blossomed into starting at a YMCA Child Development Center when I was 15 as a teacher’s aide, and I have worked in child care ever since!


In my free time, I love to play the piano, play the guitar and sing! I definitely enjoy sharing my love for music with the kiddos that I teach. I also have 3 kitties at home!


🐱Oh, and I am a huge Swiftie, so you might hear the song “Shake it off” coming from my classroom! :) 

Teacher Lissette


Hi, my name is Lissette and I one of the break support teachers here at HELP.  I have been working here for 6 years.  

I've been living in Oregon for about 13 years and absolutely love it.  I enjoy spending time with my family (I have a 15 year old daughter) as well as my 3 cats and 17 year old dachshund.
