She loves interacting with “her” babies and observing their behaviors/development. Her energy level is like no other! When you want something accomplished, ask Miss Crystal.
Miss Crystal loves to decorate the walls of her classroom with lots of art work that the children have done. One day it may look like a jungle and the next, a day at the farm!
Waheeda Rehman, Teacher Assistant
Miss Waheeda came to us in 2016, as there was an influx of babies in our center! She was a certified teacher in India before coming to this country many years ago. She is married with 3 grown children.
She came to us because she missed being with children. As soon as she started at Crossroads, in the Infant Room, she fell in love with the babies! She is so caring and truly understands the individuality of each child! And the children love her! Her smile and warmth greet each parent and child, giving them a calm start to their day.
Trisha Wood, Teacher Assistant
Miss Trisha joined Crossroads in 2019 and has been invaluable in her many roles. As an assistant in both our Twos class and Infants class, Miss Trisha showers love and affection on the children. Miss Trisha goes out of her way to ensure that the children are comfortable and having fun! She knows every child in the school because she happily helps in other classes whenever needed.

Miss Stephanie has been at Crossroads since 2021. Prior to becoming a part of the faculty here, she worked at the YMCA Daycare. Miss Stephanie loves watching the children grow and helping them learn. She also enjoys working children of all age groups and seeing their development. Most of all she loves to make children laugh! Miss Stephanie has two children and simply loves being a mom!
